Summary on Grant Application Form
This proposal brings together a number of leading UK university groups to create an interdisciplinary consortium that will carry out research relevant to the problems of waste resource management in urban environments. Through a combination of scientific, technological and multidisciplinary projects, the consortium will develop an improved understanding of (a) the scientific basis of certain waste treatment and materials/energy recovery technologies and (b) resource and energy flows through and within urban environments. We will engage strongly with the waste management industry in defining research needs and priorities, carrying out projects, and implementing research results, and aim to develop a reputation for high-quality research that will allow us to challenge current policy and influence future policy in urban waste resource management, both nationally and internationally-
