Anotation:

The course focuses on describing the interdisciplinary relationships of living and non-living nature with electrical engineering. By integrating electrical engineering into classical environmental practices, new methods and techniques are being developed that either focus on predictive environmental protection from industrial influences or address their consequences. The course discusses both routinely used technologies as well as prototype and laboratory technologies, mostly applicable to insitu remediation. Inspiration from self-renewing natural processes provides the ideal motivation and platform for developing and testing new innovative methods. The course is complemented by laboratory work carried out at CTU, UCT, IMCH and selected excursions. Laboratory facilities have been created for the course at the FEE CTU in Prague.

Study targets:

The aim of the study is to highlight the mutual ambivalent relationship of living and non-living nature with anthropogenic and industrial influences. Discussion of the possibilities of reducing the impact of human and industrial activities on the environment and introduction to modern remediation technologies.

Content:

The course studies the impact of human and industrial activities on the environment, the possibilities of its reduction and possible elimination. Modern remediation methods based on approaches combining electrical engineering, plasma chemistry, chemistry and biology are presented. The course includes laboratory exercises supplemented by excursions to specialised workplaces.

Course outlines:

1. Environment, its definition, ecology and technosphere.
2. Environmental damage, types of pollution, ecological stress, ecological disaster.
3. Assessment of negative impacts on the environment.
4. Remediation technologies - breakdown, selection and combination strategies.
5. Natural environmental cleaning processes and their stimulation.
6. Environmental technologies.
7. Economics of environmental technologies.
8. Green technologies, BAT and environmentally friendly industry.
9. Waste - types, management and industrial use.
10. Life cycle analysis.
11. Green energy and renewable energy.
12. Research, development and innovation in environmental technologies.
14. Interdisciplinary laboratory project.
