Sustainable Aggregates Project
A major overview project funded by Defra’s Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, Sustainable Aggregates was launched yesterday. The project summarises the knowledge gained from over 360 projects funded by the ALSF through MIRO, CLG and English Heritage between 2002 and 2007.
It provides a summary of the most up to date research and projects illustrating good practice, whether funded by the ALSF or from other sources. A number of reviews have been written by recognised experts in their fields and reviewed by industry representatives and other key stakeholder groups. The reviews have been designed to be easily accessible and to be widely shared.
Wider application of this knowledge will help the quarrying industry achieve continuing improvements in the sustainability of all aspects of its operations. In particular, it will help to raise awareness of the latest thinking on how the aggregates industry can mitigate the effects of quarrying and the substantial benefits that can be realised both during quarry operations and in their restoration and after use.
