Paul Nathanail combines research, teaching and consultancy in the field of land quality. He has developed guidance on both sustainable brownfield redevelopment and sustainable remediation and advocated a combined approach can deliver substantial cost reductions and environmental benefits.
''Technology Trains: Integrated geoenvironmental and geotechnical processes for sustainable brownfield redevelopment''
Geoenvironmental processes mitigating risks from natural and man-made pollutants are a necessary cost in reusing land safely. Geotechnical processes ensure the physical stability of ground based structures. By combining such processes, a larger net benefit can be achieved than designing and even implementing each in isolation. By adopting a zero waste and circular land use philosophy, site specific technology trains can be identified that will improve the environmental and economic effectiveness of a project.
