Multi-criteria analysis for identifying sustainable soil remediation alternatives
The project 'Multi-criteria analysis for identifying sustainable remediation alternatives' started in 2010 and goes on throughout 2013.
The overall objective of this project is to develop a procedure for multi-criteria analysis, MCA, which can be practically applied for sustainability appraisal of soil remediation alternatives.
Specific goals are to:
- Incorporate effects on soil system functions for evaluating ecological sustainability
- Prepare a prototype for MCA for identifying sustainable remediation alternatives.
This project will provide novel research on how to better incorporate ecological effects in sustainability appraisal at contaminated sites.
The project is financed by Formas.
Participants from the Department are Karin Wiberg and Sarah Josefsson.
External partners are Chalmers University of Technology and Umeå University.
