This course unit introduces different processes associated with Integrated Pollution Control, as far as water and waste waters treatment are concerned; off-gas, industrial waste and sound pollution. It will also focus on understanding Environmental System management.
Water treatment Waste water Soil pollution Dangerous waste
• Interpreting the processes associated with Integrated Pollution Control; • Identifying water and waste water treatment systems; • Identifying off-gases, industrial waste and sound pollution control systems; • Knowing the types of alternative energies; • Understanding Environmental Management Systems.
1. Introduction to Integrated Pollution Control: main notions, industrial process analysis. 2. Water treatment systems: water quality patterns, waste water treatment plants and chief treatments. 3. Waste Water Treatment Systems: urban and industrial off-gas unloading regulations. Waste water treatment plant and main treatments. 4. Off-gas Control Systems: Air quality patterns, stationary and moving source control. 5. Industrial waste Control Systems: definition and classification, minimization, transfer, recycling, treatment and confining. 6. Sound pollution Control: Sound wave properties and noise; measuring systems, noise sources, noise control systems. 7. Soil pollution Control: Main contaminant sources, soil pollution transport mechanisms, soil properties related to the pollutants, amending techniques. 8. Alternative energies. 9. Environmental System Management: water and waste water system management, air quality system management, integrated (urban and industrial) waste management.

Continuous assessment is privileged: 2 or 3 digital written documents (e-folios) during the semester (40%) and a
presence-based final exam (p-folio) in the end of the semester (60%). In due time, students can alternatively choose to perform one
final presence-based exam (100%).
