Visiting Lecturer in Nuclear Decommissioning and Radioactive Waste Management, University of Birmingham

Trevor Jones is a Chartered Geologist and Engineer with over 20 years’ experience in the characterisation and assessment of risks from the migration of radioactive and non-radioactive contaminants in the environment. He was one of the first professionals in the UK to be accredited as a Radioactive Waste Adviser, and as a Chartered Waste Manager is also professionally qualified to advise on non-radioactive and hazardous waste management issues.

He has considerable experience in the design, monitoring and compliance assessment of waste disposal facilities, and in the provision of advice on liability, management and remedial options for a wide range of contaminated sites, including nuclear facilities. Since 2007, he has provided extensive technical advice in connection with the planning and authorisation of facilities for the treatment and disposal of Low and Very Low Level radioactive wastes, including assessment of the impacts from liquid and aerial discharges for Permit applications, Environmental Safety Cases and Article 37 submissions. He has also been responsible for the establishment and authorisation of a facility to treat and dispose of wastes from the oil and gas industry containing Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM).

He is a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Birmingham and UCLan, and was a member of the Scottish Government Project Board responsible for developing the UK NORM waste strategy from 2011-13.
