Beatrice Smyth

My research is focused on environmental impacts and circular economy thinking, and specific areas of interest include environmental impacts, life cycle analyses, optimisation of energy pathways, resource quantification and mapping, and economic assessment. Ongoing research projects include nutrient management of digestate combined with energy recovery, the use of short rotation coppice willow to reduce agricultural run-off and improve water quality, sustainability indicators for food, hydrogen for heavy duty transport, microplastic pollution in drinking water, and the sustainable use of plastics in a circular economy.
