Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the subject is to gain complex knowledge about industrial wastewater treatment. To master the physico-chemical bases of individual technological processes. To get acquainted with design and evaluation of partial technological processes.Understand the technological processes of water treatment used in individual industries.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


This course will acquaint students with the problems of industrial wastewater and especially with their treatment. Students will acquire information about individual types of wastewater and physicochemical principles of their treatment, they will get acquainted with technological processes of treatment and their evaluation. Based on the composition of the wastewater, they will propose efficient water purification procedures used in individual industries.
