Project description

The PhD thesis is developing new knowledge in the field of sustainability assessment of remediation technologies and will eventually deliver a novel framework for evaluating remediation technologies, particularly for brownfield revitalization projects. Sustainability appraisal tools specifically for remediation technology evaluation, already exist, however these methods are relatively basic, do not always compare in-situ and ex-situ technologies on equal grounds, include overlapping indicators and are based in part on subjective measures
