Meet the Speakers – Dr. Christian Engelson

Increased diversion from landfill by exploring higher value opportunities for recovered CDW Materials

Sept 18-19, 2018
Radisson Blu Edwardian, London

Meet the Speakers – Introducing Dr. Christian Engelson

As we continue the countdown to the Circular Driven Economy, today we're looking at another of our speakers on the topic of opportunities for recovered re-usable materials, Dr. Christian Engelsen. Christian is a Senior Scientist with our research partner SINTEF, and brings vast experience and knowledge in the treatment and recycling of construction and demolition waste. Christian will join Professor Marios Soutsos in outlining where the opportunities for recovered materials exist.

Identifying the Real Opportunities

During the symposium, Christian will be showcasing the opportunities that have been identified through research for the re-use of recovered construction and demolition waste material. Christian has been involved in numerous research projects with SINTEF, and he will be highlighting some of the key findings of this research during his talk. Every year SINTEF carry out thousands of R&D projects for private and public sector organisations of all sizes, including many through the SINTEF Building and Infrastructure Institute. 

The SINTEF Building and Infrastructure Institute offers specialist expertise in technical fields ranging from architecture and construction physics to the management, operation and the maintenance of buildings, and other forms of infrastructure. These projects aim to solve the challenges that are linked to the entire construction process, and during this talk, Christian will be looking at the solutions to many of these challenges for construction companies.
