An initiative of:
Mabel Mora is a researcher with more than 10 years of experience in the valorization and treatment of solid, liquid and gaseous waste effluents through biological and physical-chemical processes.
I held a degree in Technical Architecture (EPSEB, UPC, Catalunya) and Materials Engineering (UB, Barcelona). I also held a Master's in Renewable and Sustainable Energy (UB, Barcelona). I joined in DIOPMA in October 2016 as a trainee. Currently, I combine the position as a research assistant with the position of adjunct lecturer in the Materials science and chemistry-physics department. I have just finished my PhD thesis based on the formulation of alkali-activated binders using bottom ash from municipal waste incineration. This investigation combines the main research that I am involved in, which are the valorisation of waste and by-products and the design of sustainable cement-based materials.
Raquel Garcia holds a PhD from the Universityof Alcalá. Currently she is a postdoc at the LEQUIA group, University of Girona. She has developed several projects and specifically two in technology transfer (Tecniospring and Innovadors). She has followed several entrepreneurship programs.
Edinson is a researcher of the DBA center collaborating with the GREiA center, both at the U. Lleida. He has over eight years of experience in synthetic chemistry and biotech. He has been involved in various projects focus on the valorization of materials and by-products with low commercial value.
Salvador Lladó Fernández holds a PhD in Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology (University of Barcelona, 2012). His career has been focused on R&D in the study of microbial communities associated to soil bioremediation processes (University of Barcelona) and forest soil bacterial communities and their role in the C cycle (Institute of Microbiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences). Currently he leads the Microbiome Engineering group within the Circular Economy Department at the LEITAT Technological Centre. His scientific interests are: the role of microbes as nature-based solutions to increase adaptation and mitigation of climate change and the application of microbial communities and/or isolates in different sectors of the bioeconomy, such as agriculture and industrial processes. He is also member of the climate change experts committee of the Catalan Parliament.
Eduard BORRÀS CAMPS is a Senior Researcher in Circular Economy Department at Leitat Technological Center. He holds a Degree in Environmental Sciences (2005) and a PhD in Environmental Science and Technology (2011) by the Autonomous University of Barcelona. His research experience has focused on environmental biotechnology in projects related to bioremediation, waste valorization and microbial electrochemical technologies He has been assistant professor in the Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering Department of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. His recent professional career has been focussed on the execution and management of microbial electrochemical technologies projects for energy harvesting, nutrient recovery, pollution abatement and drinking water production in several international and national R&D projects. Also, he has participated in several conferences and published over 16 peer-reviewed papers.
More than 20 years of experience in the fields of strategy and international finance. She is leading the Circular Economy & Sustainability Program in ACCIÓ. She holds a degree in Business Management and an MBA by ESADE, Barcelona, and a master’s degree in International Management by HEC Paris.
