Anna Ainsworth is an Environmental Consultant with more than five years` experience in the waste sector. She has a BSc in Environmental Management (Hons) and developed her technical expertise across multiple areas of the UK waste industry, including legislation and local policy application.
Anna recently joined T+T from the UK, where she grew up on a farm which diversified into open air windrow composting. From school age, this instilled in her a passion for dealing with green waste and the potential to create a better environment by minimising waste sent to landfill when there are pragmatic, relatively non-technical processes to manage these wastes.
Anna has operational and auditing experience for organic waste treatment and secured a four-year contract for a composting facility in the UK. She has produced permit applications for waste facilities and site waste management plans for waste, road and rail schemes. Anna also undertook a coordination role producing screening, scoping and environmental impact assessments for a biomass gasification facility. She has undertaken waste assessments and modelling to inform waste facility design, rail schemes (including high speed) and gas-fired power stations, as well as monitoring reviews of gas groundwater data for closed landfills.
