Annotation The course provides an overview analysis of industrial and construction waste, assessing its characteristics and technical-economic parameters. The course reviews modern technological methods of waste processing. The course also displays an overview of key principles of equipment for building demolishing process, recovery and recycling of waste. The course reviews the contaminated soil treatment and processing technologies. There are demonstrated key directions for metallurgical waste (sawdust, slag, waste metal, etc.) recycling. Data are based ona technical and economic analysis methods. Particular attention is paid to labour safety and environmental protection technologies used during waste treatament. The course provides lectures, laboratory and practical works, industrial visits..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
Prepare technical specialists who are familiar with the terminology, technical-economic analysis, key trends, methods and equipment forprocessing and recycling of industrial and construction technological waste. Students must be familiar with the collection, storage, transportation and processing methods and equipment for various construction, mashine industry and other industrial waste, in order to calculate the economic efficiency of the process and develop recommendations for the effective use of technological waste. After completion of the course a student (professional) must be competent in modern technological waste processing and recycling methods.
