Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to expand summary information about available remediation technologies, to acquaint with new trends and innovative approaches to cleaning contaminated sites.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The old ecological burdens in places of the industrial areas, chemical warehouses, accidental accidents and leaks are a constant danger to the environment. Efforts to liquidate and repair them are evident in all developed companies. Removal is expensive and in many cases technically very difficult to solve. The processes taking place during the action of chemical substances on contaminants occurring in groundwater and in the rock environment have been studied for a long time. The understanding and use of these processes has become the basis of remediation technologies, which are intensively laboratory, field and operational verified and optimized. The purpose of this study is to introduce these technologies into remediation practice and to gain detailed knowledge about their benefits and limits, to compare individual technologies with each other and to answer subsequent economic and environmental questions.
