Summary

The subject deals with issues of air protection against unfavourable effects of industrial activity. Influences of individual harmful substances and also consequences of specific industrial technologies and existing possibilities and methods of their elimination are assessed. Attention is paid above all to possibilities of implementation of new technologies, separators, chemical treatment of exhaust gases and supplementary processes.

Subject syllabus:

The subject contains an overview of equipment and techniques used for creating the optimal environmental condition. It provides the explanation of function of typical elements of environmental engineering and their basic characteristics. It is based on requirements for environmental properties and other factors influencing the design and operation of systems for the adjustment of thermal environmental condition, air humidity and air purity, and deals also with acoustic and optical conditions of working environment.
