In his research, Peter focusses on creating a composite material from two municipal waste-streams. Two municipal waste-streams can be transformed in a nature-based composite, which on its turn can be used to produce park benches, bike parts or any other composite product. For the city this translates to the upcycling of two waste streams and a smaller dependency on fossil resources.

Peter Mooij (1985) finished his PhD on Lipid and sugar production by mixed cultures of microalgae at the Delft University in 2015. He wrote a popular science book on how algae will save the world, was blogger for the Faces of Science program of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, gave a talk at TEDxDelft and presented his research on national TV and radio.

In the royal spotlight

Circularity in Urban Regions

At the invitation of His Majesty the King, Her Excellency Madam Halimah Yacob President of the Republic of Singapore, visited the Netherlands for a state visit on 21-22 November 2018. AMS Institute and Waternet were invited to share their innovations.

Project

Wastewater to bio-composites

Circularity in Urban Regions

Amsterdam’s wastewater can be used as feedstock for producing high-value bio-composites, which can be applied in transport, building or other urban sectors. As such, these composites contribute to a more circular urban society.

FABULOUS

Circularity in Urban Regions

Fruit-, vegetable and other organic waste is currently often converted to yield compost and low-value biogas. The goal of FABULOUS is to optimize a novel process to convert organic waste into high-value chemical building blocks.
