Job function
Work experience
Experience maturated in the files of: soil chemistry, soil and environment, waste management and bio energy production. Soil chemistry and environment with particular reference to the soil OM dynamics and soil formation including extra-Europe expedition. Soil and Environment with particular attention to the relation between agriculture and soil, manure and slurry recovery and use. Waste management with references to both research and practical activity on the fields of OM recycling, MSW, compost production and compost effect on soil etc. Bioenergy production with references to the research and application in full scale of bioenergy production by biological process, i.e. biogas production, bioethanol and bio-hydrogen production.
