Utilization and Recycling of Bio-resources University of Tsukuba
The main purpose of this course is to help the students understand the followings: (1)Basic concepts in bioresource utilization and recycling; (2)Fundamentals of design for waste/wastewater utilization and recycling; and (3)Major technologies used for bioresource utilization and recycling. In addition, case studies, especially those relating to waste/wastewater treatment and biogasification projects are also included.
(1)To understand the basics and fundamentals of bioresource utilization and recycling.(2)To get familiar with the design and application of waste and wastewater treatment and recycling.(3)To acknowledge and learn more about up-to-date bioresource technologies from case studies.
This course is related to the enhancement of students’ capabilities and skills on internationality, communication, teamwork, comprehension/analysis, project management and presentation.本授業は学生のマネージメント能力、コミュニケーション能力、チームワーク力、国際性、理解力・解析力、課題対応力と提言力の強化を目指す(英語で授業)。
Environmental chemistry and/or biochemistry
(1) Only those who attended 70% lectures will be evaluated.(2) Answers to questions and assignments should be submitted before the next lecture (60%)(3) Quiz (20%)(4) Presentation (or group report, 20%)
