    The goalOn course a wide range of organic pollutants is considered. Based on the physical, chemical and toxicological characteristics, hazard classes (reactivity, explosion, flammability and toxicity) are determined, their action on the living world (systemic, acute and chronic effects) determines their toxicity. Kinetics, biotransformations and monitoring of substances are examined. Based of the total content of these substances in the environment (by instrumental methods), the monitoring of movement through water, air and soil matrices and their characteristics sets a model for their removal and remediation.
    The outcomeThe main goal of the course is to acquire knowledge about the classification of organic substrates that are in the category of pollutants of the environment. By using known values for max. concentrations and legal requirements, a model for removing observed materials from the environment and remediation of contaminated area is set.
    Contents of lecturesModes of action of harmful chemical substances (6 hours). Definition of harmful substances and direct effect. Indirect effect of harmful substances. Assessment of toxicity, degree of toxicity, values. Danger and classification of hazards of harmful substances (15 hours). Determining degrees and categories of potential hazards. Fire hazard assessment and hazard criteria. Estimates of the danger of explosion and explosion protection. Evaluation of the danger of incidents of small and large scale. Assessment of reactivity of organic matter. Determination of the hazard class based on physical, physical-chemical and toxicological characteristics of hazardous substances. Action on the living world (systemic, acute and chronic effects). Determination of toxicity to LD. Transportation and storage of hazardous substances (8 hours). Regulations in the transport of dangerous goods (international and domestic). Classification of dangerous goods in transport, marking. Storage and packaging of hazardous substances.
