Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to provide students with basic information about the issue Air pollution and its possible consequences, where we focused mainly on technical possibilities of its protection against negative influences. Students will be acquainted with the processes of emissions in individual industry sectors and also with the possibility of their measurement and reduction (including relevant legislation).

The course deals with the issue of air protection against the adverse effects of industrial activity. The introduction briefly summarizes the effects of individual pollutants as well as the impacts of industrial technologies and current possibilities and ways of their elimination. Attention is focused mainly on the possibility of determining the concentration of ZL in waste gases on the possibility of implementing new technologies, separation equipment, chemical treatment of gases and additional processes.

Subject syllabus:

1. Composition and structure of the atmosphere and its role, importance and protection, division of Air pollutant (from a physical point of view, from a chemical point of view, from the point of view of origin) and sources of Air pollutants (from a geometric point of view, etc.) Atmospheric temperature regime, pressure, basic quantities fields and baroque formations, atmospheric fronts 2., Water in the atmosphere, humidity and its characteristics. Clouds (cloud classification). Air flow (basic types of flow in the atmosphere - laminar, convection, subsidence, turbulence, advection, geospheric wind, meteorological characteristics of wind). Characteristic effects of LZO on the environment (living nature, inanimate nature) 3. Physico-chemical properties of solid pollutants (shape, size, surface, electrical, locomotor properties) 4. Basic separation principles (gravitational, inertial, centrifugal, electric, diffusion), basic physico-chemical methods in the case of separation of gaseous pollutants (absorption, adsorption, thermal processes, condensation processes, biotechnology) 5. Basic conditions of one-time (discontinuous) measurements of measurements (conditions of operating mode, stationary, instrumentation), preparation of measurements (source inspection, plan and preparation of measurements), used units and recalculations, related and preliminary measurements (determination of pipe dimensions, determination of humidity and temperature, determination of density and velocity of waste gas) 6. Measurement of solids concentration by gravimetric method (selection of measuring point, measuring environment and work safety), determination of number and distribution of measuring points during measurement, determination of position of sampling points in circular and rectangular pipes) 7. Access flanges, determination of flow character, determination of values for sampling control, selection of suction tube, sampling isoconetics, devices, equipment and materials, evaluation of measurement results, measurement of basic gaseous ZL by instrumental and manual methods (requirements for sampling and requirements for evaluation part), processing of measured data, evaluation of uncertainty of measurement results 8. Air Protection Act (categorization of sources, emission and immission limits, obligations of operators, fees). Implementing regulations (fuel quality, emission measurement, calculation of the amount of pollutants, operational records, special protection). Convention on Long-range Pollution. Kyoto and Montral Protocol. Energy-climate package, trading and emission allowances. 9. Mathematical modeling, propagation of ZL in the air (shapes of smoke sidings), scattering studies 10. Emissions in industry (emissions from iron ore agglomerations, emissions from iron production, emissions from aluminum and glass production, examples of selected industrial processes in terms of emissions generation and disposal - production of sulfuric acid, nitric acid, polypropylene) 11. Emissions in industry (wood processing industry - wood drying, production of board materials, paint shops, emissions from mining). Emissions from electricity generation (types of equipment, energy mix of the Czech Republic, emission limits, processes used for gas cleaning). 12. Emissions from waste incineration (types of incinerators, emission limits and measurement requirements, processes used for gas cleaning, disposal of PCBs and PCDDs). 13. Exhalation in transport (characteristics, general information about engine design and control, emission limits, catalytic converter - types, engine modifications). Alternative drives.
