Kris Broos

Expert Sustainable Materials



Kris Broos graduated in 1999 as environmental engineer and obtained a PhD in Applied and Biological Sciences in 2003 at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium). After 5 years of environmental research at the CSIRO Land and Water in Australia, Kris moved back to Belgium to work at VITO, the Flemish Institute for Technological Research.

With a track record of more than 30 SCI papers and a strong involvement in several large EU projects (H2020, FP7, Interreg, EIT Raw Materials), Kris has become an expert on Sustainable Materials Management. His field of expertise is the transformation of inorganic waste streams into new resources and products. In particular, the recycling of construction and demolition waste, metal slags, and industrial waste streams have been some of his focus areas.

Currently, Kris explores a new strategic research line on the use of sensor-based technologies and machine learning for the inline characterization of heterogeneous waste streams.
