Content and learning outcomes
The course gives specialised knowledge and understanding of how industrial processes and products influence the environment as well as the legal aspects and strategies to minimise environmental impact.
The course focuses particularly on the possibilities and limitations of the process industry to both decrease its emissions of waste to atmosphere and water, and its energy use, through life-cycle analysis of energy and material.
The course structure includes:
- Project Work
- Study visits/Fieldwork
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the participant should be able to:
- Evaluate and critically review an existing process path based on sustainability aspects and the specific sustainability targets
- Give example of and evaluate relevant environmental indicators in an existing process
- Distinguish and categorise causes and sources to problems with environmental effects and propose and evaluate appropriate control mechanisms for these
- Evaluate and critically review a life-cycle analysis of an existing process
- Critically review and justify sustainability aspects in a given process path
Literature and preparations
Basic knowledge of energy and environmental issues and about process industry, corresponding to the course MH1022, Fabrication Processes of Metals and Bio Fibres, 7 credits, or the equivalent.
