Course Content (Syllabus)
Introduction: Current environmental issues (climate change, acid rain, urban pollution, ozone layer depletion), main pollutants, environmental regulations. Air pollutants calculation methodologies, emission factors. Pollutants emissions from stationary combustion sources: Power generation, industry, small combustion installations. Pollutant emissions from road transport: Vehicle technologies, COPERT 4 model application, CO2 reduction scenaria, electric and hybrid vehicles, biofuel use. Application of CRUISE/ADVISOR models for hybrid/electric vehicles simulation. Pollutant emissions from other sources: aviation, railways, maritime, off-road vehicles and machinery. Other anthropogenic sources: Solvents, quarrying, fugitive emissions from fuels, production processes, agriculture and farming, waste management. Biogenic emissions: forests. Air pollutants emissions inventories: Characteristics, emissions in national, regional and local scales. Atmospheric pollution in urban environments: spatial and temporal profiles. Emissions inventories in Greece.

Description
The students need to carry out two different projects during the semester, in which they are orally examined, while the also take final exams in the end of the semester. The final score is calculated according to: 0,2 x Score in Project 1 + 0,2 Score in Project 2 + 0,6 Score in written exams.
Student Assessment methods
