Pedagogic informations

Training objectives
This course has two parts: the first is to complete the course of " Separation Process ", since the previous year, the study of mechanical separation processes , such as filtration. The second part deals with " Clean Processes ". The objective of the first part of the course is to understand the importance of mechanical separation processes for treating and preventing pollution associated with industrial activities, including how to choose and design a pre- filtering operation . The objective of the second part of the course is to understand the concept of " Clean Process " and know the different ways of action depending on the scale considered . The following skills are covered :
- Understand and know how to use theoretical concepts of mass transfer in porous media.
- Understand and know how to choose the transfer operations of mechanical matters, including
- Become familiar with the different technologies to implement filtering.
- Understand and know how to use theoretical concepts of filtration media.
- Know pre-size a filtration filter press .
- Understand the concept of Clean Process
- Know the different scales of action for the prevention of pollution
- Understand and know examples of Industrial Ecology
- Understand and know examples of Life Cycle Analysis
- Know the main courses of action across the process .
