INFRASTRUCTURAL RECLAMATION

reclaim (v)
1. retrieve or recover (something previously lost, given, or paid)
2. bring (waste land) under cultivation

In this thesis project, the highly affected landscapes of former mine sites are strategically repurposed as sites for the research, development, and production of clean energy: hubs of a new sustainable energy infrastructure for the United States.

 

This solution simultaneously reduces the impact of clean energy generation, catalyzes the productive reclamation of abandoned mines, and stimulates local and regional economies formerly dependant on resource extraction.
