The application of environmental technologies in the environment of Germany and Argentina is absolutely different in economic and industrial, climatic, environmental and social terms. In the German reality, the focus is on preventive environmental protection with precautionary environmental protection measures. In Argentina, on the other hand, the focus is currently still on aftercare environmental protection with end-of-pipe techniques.
Recognising and overcoming these differences is a core content of the project for students from both countries. Specifically, the exchange programme focuses on environmental technologies for the prevention and treatment of contamination in water, soil and air, with an emphasis on the problems of municipal and industrial waste, the metrological recording and monitoring of pollutants and environmental damage, as well as concepts for energy saving and efficient energy use.
An essential project goal is that the future engineers of both countries are not only able to work on these topics within their ancestral habitats in a qualified manner: Argentinean students get to know the state of German environmental technology and German students get to know the special boundary conditions of environmental technology in Argentina, which can be seen as representative for large parts of the world.
