Abstract

The environment provides services that can be harnessed or engineered to achieve the needs of society in a manner that can reduce or eliminate the need for intensive interventions, for example bio/phytoremediation and passive mine-water treatment. The geoenvironment contains the resources, the energy and the genetic capability necessary to provide a much wider range of services than is currently the case. It is the aim here to draw on recent research to demonstrate the potential for geoenvironmental services to contribute to society in ways which extend and go beyond the traditional view of the geoenvironment as a source of raw material and a sink for waste, but little in between, including in resource supply and infrastructure provision.
