Presenting at Moscow's Conference: "ORGANIC WASTE MANAGEMENT: EXPERIENCE AND PERSPECTIVES"
Maya Mosseri presented at the Moscow Conference
Moscow's 3rd specialized conference "ORGANIC WASTE MANAGEMENT: EXPERIENCE AND PERSPECTIVES" was held on 20-21st of October 2020.
It was an online conference focused on different aspects of national organic waste issues.
Maya was invited as to present Israel's organic waste issues and our research directions to deal with it.
The presentation using simultaneous translation took a place in section 2 of the conference and included a review of Israel's organic waste in numbers and Israel's comparison to the OECD countries. In addition she presented the municipal waste route in Israel and the motivation to look for an on-site solution for the sorting waste station. Two experiments were presented with the current research directions. One of the experiments was the HTL of mixed ULVA and Animal Fat, which presented bio-crude extraction ability from ULVA without using a solvent.
The second experiment based on Food Waste Simulation (FWS) is at the initial stages of the research. The rationale of the FWS composition was presented and some of the possible directions of the research.
The presentation generated interest and it seems that the issues presented are universal. The exposure of our research directions can lead to sharing interests and knowledge.
Maya Mosseri, is an M.A student in the Department of Environmental Studies
Maya’s research topic is "Municipal organic waste's energy extraction".
She is writing her thesis under the guidance of Prof. A.Golberg from the porter school of Environmental Science and Prof. M.Gozin from the School of Chemistry.
