Optimization of Combustion Processes (SUT, year 1)

Module description

Course objectives:

The aim of the curse is to deliver knowledge on noxious substances formation and primary and secondary methods of emission abatement

Content of the course:

The course consists of lectures, labs and projects. The following subjects are discussed during the lectures:

  • Ecological noxiousness of combustion, importance of combustion, primary and secondary contamination, main pollutants and emission sources, emission factors, regulations
  • Mechanisms leading to formation and emission of nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, dioxins, furanes and particulate matter in the course of combustion
  • In-situ methods of emission reduction of noxious substances
  • Secondary methods of reduction of nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides and particulate matter

Written exam is conducted to assess the acquainted knowledge.

During the project students are instructed by assistant professor on how to select and design devices of noxious substances reduction. Then students are expected to undertake a number of small individual projects. The projects are assessed.

The laboratory exercises are based on a series of experiments carried out by students. The experiments are carried out in small groups. Students need to acquire knowledge of the processes, experimental facilities and procedures prior to the lab, based on materials prepared by the instructors. Then students are expected to prepare reports from each experiment.
