Summary

The subject is focused on the issues of thermal processes and their effects on the environment. Attention is devoted to the description of the ecosystem, creating emissions, the consequences of their occurrence for the environment, the possibilities of preventing their formation and disposal. Furthermore, the subject deals with the disposal of solid waste and water protection.
