Queen's to pioneer integration of new remediation technology with industry

PROFESSOR ROBERT Kalin has taken up a research chair in environmental engineering at Queen's University, Belfast.

He will lead research into the egration of civil engineering processes with environmental protection.

Research will concentrate on linking ground engineering to long term remediation of contaminated land and groundwater; waste management and waste water treatment.

Kalin, of the university's school of civil engineering, is regarded as one of Europe's foremost authorities on insitu remediation technologies and has been involved in a variety of projects worldwide. He hopes to bring together academic and industrial expertise to help support a centre of excellence in emerging interdisciplinary areas that link civil engineering with science.

There are 60 researchers in the school working in environmental engineering, focusing on the protection of soil and water, pollution protection and control techniques for monitoring the natural and built environment.

The five-year post is co-sponsored by Keller Ground Engineering and the Royal Academy of Engineering.
