Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Main target of subject is offering fundamental information about air (atmosphere) protection. The subject also contains an overview of equipment and techniques used for air protection and for creating the optimal environmental conditions.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work
Other activities


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.
