Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is a project oriented advanced course in cleaner production/environmental technology.

The course concists of two project group works. One project is devoted to the execution of Cleaner Production in a specific industrial branch. Besides giving an insight into the industry, the students will practise finding suitable Cleaner Production measures considering technical, economical and environmental aspects of the production.

In project number 2 a specific emission situation to air or water is studied. The task is to analyse this emission situation and propose and motivate different environmental technical solutions (both external and internal technical solutions) in order to solve or minimize pollutions from the activity studied.

Intended learning outcomes

The overall aim of the course is to provide deeper theoretical and applied knowledge and understanding of strategies and technologies used for a cleaner industrial production. The course will also provide knowledge about the planning and evaluating of cleaner production projects.

After a passed course the student should be able to:

  • Describe and propose the methodology for implementation Cleaner Production projects in industrial enterprises based on process and case-study descriptions.
  • Describe and motivate the selection of measures for Cleaner Production solutions in the studied cases.
  • Describe and explain the function of environmental technical (process internal solutions as well as process external methods) that can be used in order to minimize pollutions to air or water.
  • Discuss advantages and disadvantages for different environmental technical solutions.
  • Independently collect information from scientific literature and other information sources, make a compilation of this information, and analyse it in a written report.
