SAFERUP! Current Projects

Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience

The basis for the project will be to co-create the next generation of urban pavements whilst improving the environmental performance and minimising negative environmental impacts.

This will be done by taking samples of the materials and analysing them for organic and inorganic contaminants such as metals and oil residues. The project will feed back into design processes to make the drainage system connected to the pavements, as chemically sustainable as possible, maximising the opportunity to detain urban pollutants and increase the potential for bioremediation and in-situ clean up.
