Meet the Speakers – Introducing Marjorie Petitpain

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

Meet the Speakers – Introducing Marjorie Petitpain

With two weeks to go until the Circular Driven Economy Symposium, we're delighted to introduce our latest speaker, Marjorie Petitpain. Marjorie will take the stage on day one of the symposium as part of our panel discussing the Opportunities for Recovered Re-Usable Materials. Marjorie will be joined by Professor Marios Soutsos from Queen's University Belfast as they discuss the research that is currently being done on sustainable concrete solutions.

Re-using Construction and Demolition Waste Materials in Concrete

Marjorie works with Cerib (Precast Concrete Industry Study & Research Centre) and will be sharing practical advice based on her years of experience in the field of environmental precast concretes and low carbon concrete. Marjorie's work focuses on obtaining concretes from recycled materials with similar characteristics to concrete from natural material, while greatly reducing the environmental footprint. Her knowledge in the re-use of construction and demolition waste materials in concrete will provide great insight to the opportunities that exist with recycled aggregate materials.

About Marjorie Petitpain

Marjorie recently graduated as a Civil Engineering Doctor after three years of working on environmental precast concretes and low carbon concrete. Working with Cerib, Valorie regular works on topics related to the circular economy for the concrete industry. These include the valorization of industrial co-products, construction and demolition waste materials, excavated soil, and quarry or mine materials, all of which are encountered in her research.

Marjorie's skills make it possible to accompany various companies throughout the entire circular economy value chain to investigate new ways of recycling C&D waste in France and throughout the world.
