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.

Summary

Reading this course the students will have an overview of current recycling of waste and learn about world-wide classical recycling technologies. Material sources focus on secondary materials and their processing. Theoretical basics of pyrometallurgical, hydrometallurgical and electrometallurgical processes are followed by recycling technologies of regeneration of selected utility ingredients from production, processing and amortization refuse, including the issue of ecotoxicology.
