PhD student Jan Gottsche (centre) from Oranmore, Co Galway has won ‘Best Waste and Resource Management' presentation at the recent Environ 2015 conference in IT Sligo.
The research is co-funded by the Environmental Protection Agency and Carey Developments Ltd under the Cleaner Greener Production Programme.
The aim of the project is to develop a construction-phase resource efficiency toolkit for the Irish construction sector. This has involved close collaboration with industry (Carey Developments Ltd and BAM Building Ireland) through GMIT's academic-industry collaborative framework.
