    OVERVIEW

    The course is organized in two modules to provide students with knowledge of principles of chemistry for applied technologies and of industrial chemical processes in order to understand and deepen the environmental impact as well as estimate it from a qualitative / quantitative point of view. The course will also provide the basis for developing possible reduction strategies in different systems i.e. water, air and soil systems. Details are reported in each module (teaching outcomes and learning objectives).

    On completion of this course, students will be able to: evaluate environmental and technological processes, with particular attention to atmospheric and water chemistry and pollution. The course will also provide an in-depth knowledge of the main industrial processes, with particular reference to environmental and sustainability issues related to these processes and their products. Students will and will be able to carry out mass and energy macroscopic balances on simple processes​.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    On completion of this course, students will be able to: describe, discuss and compare structure and properties of inorganic and organic chemicals (including polymers and biomolecules) involved in environmental and technological processes, with particular attention to atmospheric and water chemistry and pollution. The course will also provide an in-depth knowledge of the main industrial processes, with particular reference to environmental and sustainability issues related to these processes and their products. Students will acquire skills and methods to deal with problems related to the chemicals reactivity and interactions and will be able to carry out macroscopic mass and energy balances on simple processes​.
