Contributing to Best Practice for Waste Management in Europe

Impact: Environmental impacts, 06: Clean Water and Sanitation (UN SDG), 13: Climate Action (UN SDG)

Description of impact

Tudor et. al.'s research was cited in a report on Best Environmental Management Practice for the Waste Management Sector, a document 'intended to support the environmental improvement efforts of all organisations dealing with waste management by providing guidance on best practices' (p. 15). The document, which is designed as a 'working tool' draws on the university's research into the incineration of health-care waste. The information from this report was later developed into an interactive website for Green Best Practice in Europe.
