Physical and Chemical Processes in Recycling Course code: 181417 | 6 ECTS credits

Basic information
Level of Studies: Undergraduate applied studies
Year of Study: 2
Semester: 3
Requirements: None.
Goal: The adoption of basic knowledge on the physical and chemical characteristics of recyclable materials, students can independently monitor the engineering, material and energy flows in recycling technologies.
Outcome: Acquisition of engineering knowledge necessary for further training in the recycling field of metals, non-metals, polymers, composites. Introduction to process-technological aspects of obtaining useful components from waste, by- products and secondary raw materials.
