Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will have deeper insight into the technical side of waste and wastewater disposal.
Waste Management and Recycling II
 
In the section on waste, students will gain a deeper understanding of the technical function and waste management interactions of thermal waste treatment plants.
Students will be able to deal with technical and planning issues concerning the operation and realization of landfills in connection with their ecological (emissions) and economic effects.
 
Wastewater Treatment
In the section on wastewater, students will become familiar with the principles of physical, biological and chemical oxidation and the elimination of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus compounds from wastewater.
They will be able to develop complex wastewater treatment concepts and design wastewater treatment plants in accordance with legal requirements and technology standards.
They will understand how to apply advanced design methods on a more in-depth theoretical basis. They will also use complex, computer-aided programs to do so.
Students will be familiar with the evaluation of applied scientific reports and will be able to work and solve comprehensive tasks in a team.
