Annotation -
The course reflects modern trends applied in the decontamination process and waste treatment, students are practically informed about selected technologies used to waste streams processing and pollutants removal from contaminated matrices and about analysis leading to the determination of the related materials and substances. Students learn the analytical procedures for gaseous, liquid and solid materials and acquire a number of instrumental analytical methods.
