Pepe is currently undertaking his Year in Industry at alchemia-nova as part of his Civil Engineering study. He has spent time working with small semi-off-grid communities who use circular economy principles as an initiative to be more responsible for their own waste. Be it with aquaponics, vermicompost toilets, refined composting techniques, second life food banks etc. Also studied horticulture and landscaping as a trainee, learning much about permaculture and propagation.
His initial interest in biomimicry has led him to seek experience in the sector and is currently a prototyping technician here at alchemia-nova working on projects including HYDROUSA and HOUSEFUL.
