Resource Recovery from Waste (RRfW) is a 5 year collaborative research programme engaging academia, industry, government and the general public to develop knowledge and tools to reduce pressure on natural resources and create value from wastes.

The final conference organised by the RRfW programme is due to take place in January 2019 – preliminary details are available at
