Irmantas Valūnas, Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania, Head of Water Policy Division

The knowledge, acquired during environmental engineering studies, is useful all the time, whether they are in the area of ambient air, waste or wastewater treatment technologies. Environmental protection is a very wide area and environment components are closely related – when one of them is impacted, some form of this impact is also transferred to another one. Therefore systematic approach is important for an assessment of reasons, consequences, possible technological solutions and required legal regulation of environmental pollution.
