Recommended semester/trimester: Manufacturing Systems and Quality Management (in english language) - master (compulsory), 4. semester
Level of study: 2.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
During semester, the student prepares up 1 project. The sum of points for the project is 20 points. To pass it one must score at least 10 points. The examination consisting of written and oral parts is awarded a maximum of 30 points. To pass the examination one must score at least 16 points. Student will get the credits for the subject if she/he completes the project and examination successfully.

Evaluation is done as follows: A 46-50 points; B 41-45 points; C 37-40 points; D 32-36 points; E 31-26 points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student aquires knowledge of sustainable development strategy for environment and waste management, putting stress on the automotive production. He/she understands environmental management systems by international standards ISO family 14000 in automotive. A student gaines basic knowledge of waste management – waste classification, methods and technologies (collection, pretreatment, recovery, recycling, disposal). He/she will be familiar with the design principles of the waste processing machines and technologies, as well as their efficient operation. He/she can develop a project on the lines for the optimal waste processing.
Course contents:
1. Environmental and waste management in automotive production. Systems and standards of environmental management (ISO 14000, ES 53/2001, ES 98/2008,... ).
2. Waste management in automotive – basic definitions, classification of wast (hazardous, non- hazardous), survey of waste management technologies (re-use, collection, recycling, recovery, disposal), best available technologies.
3. New technologies for optimal recovery of waste - material and energy recovery, waste-free and low-waste technologies, technologies for hard recyclable waste originated in automotive.
4. Analysis of machines used for different phases of waste management.
5. Machines for separation, pretreatment, material and energy recovery of waste.
6. The new design concept of machines used for waste processing.
7. Project management in the design of lines intended for waste processing.
