Synopsis:

The course deals with the importance of protecting the environment and the effect of production engineering on the environment. Attention is focused on a methodology for assessing the impact of production processes and products themselves on the environment. Economic quantification of the damages caused by pollution and economic effectiveness of the environmental investments are calculated.

Requirements:

Presentation on a selected environmental issue, submission of solved problem tasks.

Syllabus of lectures:

1.Ecology as a science, the development of approaches to environmental protection

2.Global environmental problems, negative effects on the environment

3.Renewable and non-renewable resources

4.Ecology and engineering

5.Waste management, Impact of transport on the environment

6.Environmental Management (Standards ISO 14 000 and EMAS II)

7.Product life cycle analysis (LCA - Life Cycle Analysis), eco-design, cleaner production

8.Environmental costs, environmental indicators, Eco-labeling

9.Legal aspects and statistics of the environment in the CR, the state of the environment in the CR, monitoring the state of the environment

10.Quantification of damage caused by pollution of the environment

11.Economic efficiency of environmental investment

12.Environmental tools

13.Environmental Economics, off-market valuation methods
