Costas Velis is Director of FUELOGY, a specialised research and management consultancy, delivering solutions on resource efficiency and circular economy, working in the interface between traditional solid waste management, resources management, and energy production and use.

Dr Velis in his main academic capacity is Lecturer in Resource Efficiency Systems at the University of Leeds, and serves as Vice Chair of the Waste-to-Energy Research and Technology Council UK, the national branch of the global WtERT organization.

With 10 years of hands-on experience in the sector, his research focuses on innovative ways to turn waste into useful and safe products and renewable energy, by using multiple research tools and disciplines, from statistical design of experiments for modeling, to analytical chemistry and materials science. In his consultancy capacity he works on applicable on-the-ground solutions, envisaging a sustainable and resource efficient 21st century society.

Dr Velis obtained a BSc in Physics with specialisation in Environmental Physics from University of Athens (Greece), an MSc in Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Development from Imperial College London (UK), and holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering from Cranfield University, Centre for Energy and Resource Technology, Sustainable Systems Department (UK), where he developed a novel material flow model for mechanical-biological treatment plants (MBTs) producing solid recovered fuels (SRF).

His wider expertise in waste and resources science and management resulted in invitations to scientific committees, chairing of conference sessions and delivering invited lectures around the world. He is coordinating member of the International Solid Waste Association (ISWA) Globalization and Waste Management Task Force, steering committee member of the CIWM Thermal Treatment Special Interest Group, and member of the ISWA Working Group on Energy Recovery. He is also on the steering committee of the Environment Technical Group of the Society of Chemical Industry, which brings together academia with industry, and on the Editorial Board of Waste Management Research, which publishes leading peer-reviewed research on waste and resource efficiency.
