Course Units (new window)


Stephan Köster, Wolfgang Ahlf

Course Format:

2 Hours Lecture


Winter Semester



Recommended Previous Knowledge:

Fundamentals in chemistry, biology, environmental engineering


- Ecological and Technological Concepts
- Industrial Ecology
- Inorganic Contaminants
- Organic Contaminants
- Air Pollution Control
- Wastewater
- Potable Water
- Soil
- Waste

Learning Outcomes:

After successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

- describe and explain the most important pollution control technologies, i.e. water-, wastewater and waste treatment methods

- assess the environmental behavior of pollutants

- explain methods that limit the spread of pollutants in contaminated soils and sediments and to apply them for solving corresponding problems

- adequately assess the potential of recycling methods

- to implement pollution control technology into long-term ecological, material, and energy policies and into the current knowledge of decomposition, transfor­ma­tion and dispersion of potentially toxic substances
