Topic 6.2 Control of Emissions from Different Anthropogenic Activities (2 ects)
This topic concentrates on the methods how to affect the toxic compounds (gases, liquids and particulate matter) coming from
power production based on the combustion of fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) and renewable fuels (biomass, municipal waste), and on the use of radioactive materials
transport (roads, railways, maritime, air traffic)
extractive activities and natural resources processing (solid minerals, oil, natural gases)
wastewater treatment and different deposits (waste, ash, sludge).
In addition, safety related issues are discussed.
Main learning objectives
The main learning topics are
toxic emissions coming from power production
measurement, monitoring and control of emissions in power production
safety with emissions.
After learning this topic, participants will be able to
explain how to measure and monitor emissions in power production
describe and analyze basic methods how to affect the production processes generating toxic emissions, using, process flow charts and diagrams
assess safety conditions and apply related safety guidelines when dealing with toxic substances.
