In the last years he took over the responsibility for the association’s certification scheme for compostable plastics.

Marco has 20 years of experience in planning consistent MSW management, designing and up­grading of collection and transport schemes, assessing recycling facilities (focus on composting), working in multi-linguistic, multi-tasking working groups or projects  both in ´high-´ and ´low to middle income’ countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
