Resource Recovery from Waste is a collaborative research programme engaging academia, industry, government and the general public to develop knowledge and tools to reduce pressure on natural resources and create value from wastes. It was set up to deliver the environmental science needed to support a radical change in the waste management landscape. With six projects at leading UK universities, the programme is building tools to model the multiple dimensions of value whilst also developing enabling biogeochemical technologies for new supply chains.
