Tasks

In my work I research the EU and the national regulation on circular economy. My research has especially focused on the commodification of waste. For example, I have examined the problematic interface between chemicals, product and waste legislation. In the project titled “Advantages and disadvantages of end-of-waste regulation” me and my colleagues took a closer look on the legal definition of waste and how the waste and non-waste classifications could impact the regulatory framework applied to waste-based materials and their use. Currently I am involved in multiple project concerning circular economy, efficient resource use and the safety of waste-based materials.
