The overall project will provide the rationale for moving the focus of the study from electric motors to sewage pumping systems.
Based on existing evidence, an investigation into the lifecycle (environmental, social and economic) impacts of motor driven systems, focussing on sewage pumping systems as a test case. This research will primarily focus on environmental impacts, but should also include any relevant social, health and economical impacts. Both UK and international sources - where appropriate, will be analysed with clear references and rationale.
This project will be able to review and assess the evidence, for robustness and identify any uncertainties and key evidence gaps.
