A group of dedicated researchers has recently been awarded a grant from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to conduct a mini project within Resource Recovery from Waste (RRfW) programme. The team of research fellows consists of Dr. Helen Baxter from University of Hull (NERC R³AW project); Dr. Eleni Iacovidou, Dr. Jonathan Busch and Dr. John Hahladakis from University of Leeds (NERC C-VORR project); Dr. Kok Siew Ng from University of Surrey (NERC METEORR project); and Dr. Ben Herbert who is the Director of Research and Environment at Stopford Energy & Environment.
The team has come up with a catchy name for the project – MAPeRR (Multi-parametric Assessment of Policies for Resource Recovery from Waste). This project aims to develop an evidence based map to identify gaps and interventions between existing policies and waste practices and to ensure sustainability and resilience of resource recovery management practices. The kickoff meeting for this project on the 27th July 2016 was very fruitful as everyone was on the same page and has generated numerous excellent ideas to proceed with the project.
