The course provides the basic knowledge of material balances and phase equilibria in multicomponent and multi-reacting systems, useful for modelling environmental compartments and environmental interfaces. Applications are related to health risk assessment, environmental contamination and processes for the treatment of chemical pollutants
The purpose of this course is the application of basic principles and methods for modelling environmental processes, in order to solve simple problems related to the assessment of environmental contamination and health risk. Applications are about the reaction of chemicals in mixed and segregated volumes, repartition of pollutants into soil and groundwater, evaporation of liquid spills, filling /discharging of environmental compartments. Some basic concepts about health risk assessment are also given.
Attendance and active participation in the proposed training activities (lectures, exercises) and individual study will allow the student to:
- write mass and energy balances for reacting systems at macroscopic scale and apply them to environmental systems and processes;
- write constitutive equations for thermodynamic equilibrium and chemical kinetics and apply them to environmental systems and processes;
- Solve simple dynamic problems on environmental reacting systems and processes.
The course provides lectures (with the help of slides provided by the teacher) and exercises/ group activity.
Theoretical contents alternate exercises and case studies aimed at encouraging the learning and discussion of specific problems involving the analysis of different approaches.
Transversal competences as autonomy of judgment will be acquired during the solution of the case studies, to be carried out in a group, communication skills will be acquired during the discussion of case studies and oral examination.
The course is on-line, using the Teams platform, or in mixed teaching modality. Lectures are recorded and available to the students. Work groups are created on Teams platform and case studies are discussed individually with each group.
Course handouts and slides supplied by the teacher (full bibliography is also contained).

L'orario di tutti gli insegnamenti è consultabile su EasyAcademy.
Written exercise: a real problem about a simple environmental process (contamination by chemicals).
Oral examination: questions about about theory.
Written exercise: it is used to evaluate the ability of the students to apply theory in order to assess contamination / risk at screening level (with different types of simple models).
Oral examination: it is used to evaluate the contribute of each student inside the team work and her/his capability to apply theory.
