Synopsis:

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with promising technologies of production of alternative energy sources (biomethane, biohydrogen) and valuable substances as raw materials for production of eco-innovative materials (bioplastics, composite materials) from waste biomass like agricultural, food, industrial and biodegradable municipal wastes.

Requirements:

mandatory attendance of seminars; assessment demand according to the valid notice

Syllabus of lectures:

1. MSW and waste biomass, reduce-reuse-recycle, raw material security, bioproducts, biofuels.

2. Pretreatment of wastes - grinding and milling, drying.

3. Pretreatment of wastes - chemical and hydrothermal pretreatment.

4. Biogas production technology.

5. Advanced bioethanol production technology.

6. Sustainable biodiesel and jet fuel.

7. Gasification and pyrolysis.

8. CO2-to-X conversion technologies.

9. Biorefinery.

10. Waste-2-X strategies - laboratory tour.
