Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to introduce students to the discipline dealing with mineral biotechnology. The course provides information on the production of biologically active substances biotechnological methods, which are used to protect the environment. Particular attention is paid to methods and applications in the field of mineral resources. Acquired knowledge is the basis for optimization, measurement and process control.
