Exhaust and flue gas after-treatment technologies

Individual course

If you are taking this course as part of a FITech minor, please note that all minors will be offered for the last time in the academic year 2021-2022. Please check the individual courses for updates regarding future availability.

Clean end efficient energy conversion is the key challenge for society. The course gives an outlook on harmful emission components, measurement principles and legislative framework. Further, it provides the current state of the art in emission mitigation and after-treatment.

Learning outcomes: The course is designed to provide students with knowhow and knowledge in the emissions legislation, emissions formation, and emissions abatement systems.

Content and objectives: Review of emissions legislation, fundamentals of emissions formation in engines and basics of emissions abatement systems.

After passing the course, the student is able to

  • list what kind of pollutants the exhaust of engines and flue gas of boiler plants contain
  • explain how various constructive, management and operating factors affect the emissions quantities of exhaust and flue gases
  • describe how the engine exhaust and boiler flue gases are cleaned
  • describe the principles of pollutant measurement systems
  • compute emissions amounts and convert measurement results to other forms defined in and required for the legislation.

The course promotes problem-solving and decision-making skills, critical thinking, analytical way of working, literal expression and oral communication. The course also promotes life-long learning plus collaboration skills.
