Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course deals with the basic chemical processes in energy generation, combustion processes, further then alternative energy sources. The course is focused on the description and understanding of the basic chemical processes in the operation of selected devices and their environmental impact, and the process of minimizing harmful influences. Students after completing the course will be able to: - solve balance calculations in relation to the combustion process, balance calculations for emissions reduction technology, design and evaluate reduction of emissions. - solve the thermochemical calculations, - working with the concepts heat of reaction, chemical equilibrium, chemical potential, kinetics of chemical reactions. - selecting and operating methods to minimize emissions specific energy sources. The subsequent application of specific knowledge in practice is in the course working with the thematic combustion, formation of gaseous emission, processes to minimize emissions (SO2, NOx and other pollutants) from the flue gas, primary and secondary methods of emissions reducing in the flue gas. For the understanding of the current technologies of flue gas cleaning and application of this knowledge, the student is familiar with descriptions of the methods, descriptions of current technology solutions for desulfurization and denitrification.
