Sep 2020 - Present

VITO

Trainee (Sustainable Materials Management)

I am currently engaged in research for manufacturing new construction materials from construction and demolition waste. The routes taken can vary according to the specification needs and environmental compliance. This is also a part of my master thesis and I would be comfortable in providing consultation in sustainable building materials, sustainable building legislation and LCA of concrete based materials.
