Department of Resource Recovery and Building Technology
Room number: E806
I am a PhD student at the Swedish Centre for Resource Recovery at the University of Borås. I work within the field of recourse recovery, particularly in relation to waste management and utilization of resources in residues from supermarkets and industries.
My research focuses on environmental aspects of resource recovery and management in society, such as material flow analysis of food waste, with focus on supermarkets and bakeries; and life cycle assessment of waste systems, waste and energy technologies, and biofuels.
