TWT appoints Director of New Products and R&D


The award-winning company, The Waste Transformers, has appointed Fausto Marcigot in the new role of Director of New Products and R&D. Due to the rapid growth of the company, in the Netherlands and abroad, the company is further enriching its offerings around food waste to value transformations.

Fausto has a background in Mechanical Engineering and over 10 years experience building energy companies in the UK, Madagascar and Kenya. He enjoys 0-to-1 technology development and has a personal interest in food waste-to-energy technologies that form part of a regenerative circular economy.
Fausto has recently moved to Amsterdam from Ireland and is enjoying exploring the city with his bicycle. Fausto is also a DIY enthusiast who enjoys making bread and brewing beer in his home brewery.

“We are very happy with Fausto being onboard, “said Lara van Druten, CEO and Founder of The Waste Transformers. “Fausto has great experience in Product Development and we see a good fit with his ideas and knowledge applicable to our further developments. He will be a great addition to our international team.”

The Waste Transformers is a provider of small-scale waste to energy installations which generate energy from organic waste. These installations are placed on the site where the waste is produced, which is applicable in various industries such as hotels, harbours, communities, and other food waste producing markets. They transform the food waste into green energy, recover water, and filter the valuable nutrients from the waste to be used as a natural fertilizer.

We are currently active in the Netherlands, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Portugal, Ghana, Uganda, Chile and the Middle East. “My personal interest in sustainable product development and a circular economy, and especially around food waste do come together in this new role. The Waste Transformers is a special company supporting local businesses and global international accounts in converting food waste into renewable resources, in winning back the nutrients in the food waste, and in creating the basis for new up-cycled products, thereby minimizing the impact on the environment, while at the same time supporting local communities,” Marcigot said. “In this, The Waste Transformers bring the circular economy to life, in a very tangible way, and it feels good to be part of this positive movement.”
