Dr Richard Bewley is a contaminated land remediation specialist with over 40 yearsâ€™ experience in the field of environmental microbiology, chemistry and bioremediation.
He graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1976 and subsequently undertook a PhD in heavy metals and microbial ecology at the University of Bristol. Following almost five years of research into environmental contaminants and soil microbial processes at New York University and the University of Calgary, he returned to the UK in the mid-1980â€™s, where he pioneered some of the earliest bioremediation projects in Europe. In 1990 he joined Dames & Moore (subsequently URS then AECOM) and has provided the technical direction for a wide range of ex situ and in situ remediation projects particularly using biological and chemical approaches.
With over 50 publications in his field he has served on the Soil Science Advisory Committee, is a visiting lecturer at Lancaster University and was made an Honorary Fellow of the University of Edinburgh (2007).
