Annotation -
The course is focused on the formation, use and disposal of wastes, mainly wastes produced by the food industry and related industries. Students will be acquainted with the basic waste disposal technologies such as landfilling, incineration, etc. as well as biological waste treatment methods such as composting and methanisation. In the course there will be described individual food technologies related to the wastes and by-products, which are generated by the production and the possibilities of their use. Attention is paid to waste prevention, sorting of waste, secondary raw materials, recycling and packaging of the materials, eventually decontamination of the already wasted environment. It will be discussed the perspectives of wasteless technologies too, especially considering with the use of modern technologies. Last but not least, we will also deal with the treatment of wastewater arising in every food industry and the treatment of raw water for drinking water, which is essential in all production. An integral part of the subject is lectures focused on wastes created from industrial accidents.
