The Sue waste consortium was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) under its sustainable urban environment (Sue) programme to carry out an integrated, multi-disciplinary programme of research into waste resource management in the urban environment. The consortium aimed to address some of the most pressing issues facing modern-day waste management practitioners and policy makers. This briefing provides an overview of the background, mode of operation and outputs of the consortium, which have yielded potential benefits both for UK research capabilities and the waste management industry. It has advanced the knowledge base in a way that should enable more informed policy and decision making. This will in turn contribute to the ultimate goal of sustainability in urban waste resource management.
