Securing the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund Knowledge Legacy - RE0501

Description
This project is to make the £60m invested in ALSF R&D during 2002-2011 readily accessible to practitioners across industry, NGOs, local authorities and academia. The work involves synthesising research and web-based materials to be available through the Mineral Industry Research Organisation’s sustainable aggregates website to ensure a professional product that meets industry and others’ expectations. This is to meet a Ministerial commitment made when abolishing the ALSF in the Spending Review.

The output of the project has been published as http://www.sustainableaggregates.com/
