We are interested in the design of Civil and Environmental Engineering systems for people - systems that provide vital services such as water, sanitation and wastewater management. Our research involves water treatment and supply; wastewater treatment and management; land remediation; waste recycling, recovering and disposal; environmental sustainability; ensure public health and sanitation in urban, rural and recreational areas.

Environmental Engineering laboratories are based within the William Rankine building and include both common and specialised facilities such as membrane systems, advanced oxidation processes (AOP) set-ups and biological reactors. The latest analytical and microbiology instruments are currently available in our laboratory. Ms Louise Hogg provides technical expertise and support and is the core coordinator of the labs.
- Development of an effective tertiary wastewater treatment technology for removing contaminants of emerging concern
- Health and Safety in Voluntary Sector Construction Projects
