The Centre for Resource Efficiency and the Environment aims to “engineer a world without waste”.
We use practical investigations, data analysis and modelling to develop an improved understanding of flows of valuable resources, such as materials, water, and energy, and associated environmental impacts. We then use this understanding to develop appropriate technologies to conserve and recover resources. For example, we have projects in supply and purification of water, recovering resources from household and industrial wastes, and low energy ventilation of buildings.
The Centre for Resource Efficiency & the Environment Group is located within the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering at University College London. There are currently 13 researchers within this group.
