Dr Oliver Heidrich

Work Stream 3 Lead

Dr Oliver Heidrich is a lecturer in Civil and Environmental Engineering at Newcastle University. His vision is that central and Local Government, companies and society at large understand and appreciate the environmental and resource consequences of their actions up and down the supply and value chain in a changing world. This is supported by his research on resource management, climate change adaptation and mitigation, environmental management, urban planning, life cycle assessment and standardised management systems. Dr Heidrich has initiated and conducted internationally leading research in environmental engineering and management. He has also co-developed patents e.g. recycling technology (Patent number WO2004082912), green infrastructure (WO2000073593) and products from waste (WO2006123111). He develops and applies social, engineering and management methodologies to increase the profitability and understanding of industrial and urban processes.

 

Dr Heidrich’s projects have been assessed independently and received highest possible ratings for the transfer of technical and management knowledge. He has designed and delivered training courses and consulted with local and multinational companies from the construction to the banking sector. His work enhances the research and training of science, engineering and managerial knowledge as they are directly relevant to businesses and governmental organisations. Dr Heidrich models climate change adaptation, mitigation, natural resources and material flows using e.g. life cycle assessment, industrial ecology and standardised systems e.g. 9001, 18001 and 14001 in urban environments. He aims to provide researchers and decision makers with a system-scale understanding of the inter-relationships between resource mapping and resource use in cities. For this he considers climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and technologies in the built environment.

 

WORK STREAM 3 LEAD: Business & Regulation

The Business and Regulation work stream is investigating the developed processes from across ReLiB, as well as existing processes, in order to quantitatively assess the life cycle, technical and economic requirements and performances of EV Batteries. New business models and regulatory frameworks will be examined in conjunction with the complete, full-cycle value chain.
