The aim of these lectures is an introduction to chemical technologies and environmental processing. The processes are understood as the complex of applied basic scientific knowledge, dealing with physico-chemical transformations. The target is a production of valuable products. The technological principles of production are clarified by consequent steps and relations of physico-chemical processes, instead of comprehensive data.
