Language of instruction:
Assumed knowledge on:
ETE-24804 Fundamentals of Environmental Technology + PCC-21802 Introductory Thermodynamics or comparable.
The subject of this course is the exploration of microbiological opportunities to recover resources within Environmental Technology, thereby closing material cycles with minimal losses. Thermodynamic, microbiological and biotechnological unified principles are used to assess the viability of those opportunities for application in practice. Viable opportunities are developed into technological concepts working at optimal energy conditions.
After successful completion of this course students are expected to:
- have gained an understanding in the fundamental principles underlying biological processes in Environmental Technology;
- be able to relate this knowledge via mathematical kinetic relationships to the design of systems for the biological treatment of soil, waste water, solid waste and off-gas;
- have a basic understanding of the operational aspects of the biological systems.
- attending the lectures;
- literature research;
- studying the theory and work on a case study in a group.
Judgement from written exam (50%) and case portfolio (50%), provided that both are valued 5 or higher.
