Environmental Risk and Sustainability in the Energy & Resource Industries

Environmental risk management in the energy and resource industries is essential in order to minimise impacts of emissions and waste on sustainability, and human and ecosystem health. This application is for research leadership in a range of projects, including the assessment of power station contributions to photochemical smog and fine particle formation in urban regions; improved techniques for the reporting of emissions to the national pollutant inventory; human health assessments of gas and particulate emissions from motor vehicles; and a comprehensive study of mercury sources, transport and fate.
