SCRIB ­ the Steel Can Recycling Information Bureau ­ provides information... on steel packaging recycling to the general public, local authorities and the commercial sector. It is a valuable education resource for teachers, parents and education officers, with downloadable class room activities which can also be done in the home. Our aim is to raise awareness of the importance of recycling steel.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) is Scotland’s environmental regulator. Our main role is to protect and improve the environment. We do this by being an excellent environmental regulator, helping business and industry to understand their environmental responsibilities, enabling customers to comply with legislation and good practice and to realise the many economic benefits of good environmental practice. We protect communities by regulating activities that can cause harmful pollution and by monitoring the quality of Scotland's air, land and water. The regulations we implement also cover the keeping and use, and the accumulation and disposal, of radioactive substances. SEPA is a non-departmental public body, accountable through Scottish Ministers to the Scottish Parliament. SEPA has been advising Scottish ministers, regulated businesses, industry and the public on environmental best practice for over a decade.
SITA Environmental Trust have supported a project, carried out by r3 environmental technology limited and AEA Technology PLC, to collate the large body of existing, and apparently forgotten, information about composting mechanically separated fractions of MSW including sampling and sample preparation issues; and then to present this information in a form that is easily accessible to the UK waste management industry, environmental consultants and researchers.
SITA Trust supports community and environmental improvement projects through the Landfill Communities Fund. On the website you can find out how to apply and see what projects they have supported across the UK.
Through this MRes Environmental Management degree, great emphasis is placed on obtaining the practical skills necessary for working in environmental management, with almost two thirds of the course marks coming from the research project. Many of the projects will be based in industry or in governmental organisations, which enhances the relevance of the research undertaken. The link takes you straight to the course
