2008 – 2017; Stopford Energy & Environment
I led Stopford’s waste team, providing expertise in regulation, waste treatment technologies, and waste characterisation, with an emphasis on problem wastes, and often exploring options for energy recovery. I worked with clients to develop bespoke waste treatment solutions, address their regulatory obligations, and conducted technical feasibility studies. I worked on numerous and varied research projects with Unviversity partners, ranging from development and testing of waste-derived agricultural products, to development of a novel microwave plasma gasification system to treat waste and provide energy.
