TALK: Designing out Waste: Exploring barriers for material recirculation

Who are we / Wer sind wir ?

My name is Isabel Ordóñez and I am a Chilean industrial designer, with a recently finished PhD in resource recovery from waste. You can find articles and a link to my thesis available here:

What will we do / Was werden wir machen ?

I would love to shortly present the results of my thesis and its practical implications. I explored through 3 studies what difficulties we face when trying to recover resources from the existing waste streams.

I would be happy to join a session with other related talks or something. I would need presentation infrastructure (projector or screen, microphone if necessary). I can present for 20-30 minutes and then have time for Q&A.
