Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to develop waste management concepts and strategies for the municipal/regional sector. Students will have gained in-depth insight into logistical processes and mechanical/biological treatment plants and be familiar with the corresponding mechanisms of action and material-flow-oriented relationships (including mass balances). Students will be familair with technical and planning issues with regard to the operation and implementation of appropriate waste management facilities in connection with their ecological (emissions) and economic effects.
