Mireia Fernandez

Chemical Recycling Leader, AIMPLAS

Conference Speaker

She studied Chemistry at the Universitat de València and has a master’s degree in Sustainable Chemistry from the Universitat Politècnica de Valencia (UPV). She has been working as a researcher in the AIMPLAS Chemical Recycling department since 2020. She has experience in the synthesis of polymers through low environmental impact routes as well as in the organic synthesis of high-value-added additives from biomass. Her research is focused on the valorization of plastic waste through physical recycling such as dissolution and extraction processes and chemical recycling techniques such as depolymerization by solvolysis or thermo-chemical processes. In addition, she is a member of the flame retardants research group at AIMPLAS, where she investigates the recovery of high-value-added flame-retardant additives and the elimination of legacy substances from fireproof plastic waste.
