Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Knowledge of waste management in terms of their disposal and removal and their efficient material and energy recovery. Ability to distinguish different approaches, to estimate and find best solutions for a particular problem of waste management. Students will be able to obtain information for work experience, demonstrate a general overview and evaluate the issue. Compare different approaches and practical side of them. Being able to produce results and solve them independently. Demonstrate ability to communicate (active both writing and speaking), manage technical terminology.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The course deals in detail with the issue of waste utilization and disposal. Lectures focus on recycling, thermal processing of waste, biological methods of waste disposal, composting, waste dumping and physical-chemical methods of waste disposal.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

During the semester there will be discussions about topics being taught in lectures, in exercises there will be control in the form of tests and two semester projects. At the end of semester written and oral exams.
