Environmental Technology

The development of environmental technology, which is also known and commonly used under the term environmental protection technology, is a relatively young technical-technological discipline, which as a counterbalance to climate change and to earth warming seeks and offers interdisciplinary technical-technological methods for protection of the environment and for restoration of already damaged ecosystems. Environmental technology essentially involves two aspects, namely the integration of environmental protection already at the production stage and ultimately in the end product itself in the sense of waste avoidance and emissions reduction, and secondly it concerns the processing and utilisation of unavoidably occurring waste and production-related waste products. In this specialist direction, too, there is a direct link with almost all the specialist areas of natural science and technology. In the development of techniques for the effective use of renewable energies, there is a close connection with energy technology.

The main areas of environmental technology are:

  • disposal (waste removal, recycling, refuse incineration)
  • creation of landfills
  • metrological detection and monitoring of hazardous materials and environmental damage
  • waste water purification
  • protection of water and soil
  • monitoring and reduction of air pollution
  • noise control
  • radiation protection

Inventions in environmental technology cannot be assigned to a specific section of the International Patent Classification (IPC). The classification is directed more according to the application of the invention or its technical-physical operating principle.
