    The goalSudents are introduced into morden techniques which involve application of supercritical or near-critical fluids in fields of high pressure separation processes, chemical reactions under high pressures and particle generation using high pressures. Different industrial high pressure processes will be analyzed as well as mathematical models for the simulation of mentioned processes, which will make students skilled to take part in development of high pressure processes. Students will gain experience in experimental work with supercritical and near-critical fluids on the laboratory scale.
    The outcomeSudents are introduced into morden high pressure techniques in fields of separation processes, chemical reactions and particle generation. Students gained experience in experimental work with supercritical and near-critical fluids on the laboratory scale.
