Deborah Panepinto, graduated in Environmental Engineering at Politecnico di Torino on March 2006 (mark 110 L /110) and achieved her PhD in Environmental Engineering at Politecnico di Torino (focus: wastes thermal treatment) on April 2012.

Since July 2006 she worked at Politecnico di Torino as Post Degree grant holder and from December 2018 she is Associate Professor.

Her scientific activity concerned, in particular, the following research fields:

  • Wastes management;
  • Wastewater treatment management
  • Renewable energy production;
  • Evaluation of the environmental compatibility of the industrial plants;
  • Analysis of the pollutant dispersion.
  • She has the titolarity of the teaching “Evaluation of the environmental damage and compatibility” (in italian “Valutazione del danno ambientale e compatibilità”) for the Master Degree in Environmental Engineering, of the teaching Climate Change Mitigation for the Master Degree in Environmental Engineering and of the teaching “Energetic valorization of waste and biomass” (in Italian “Valorizzazione energetica di rifiuti e biomasse”) for the PhD in Environmental from January 2016 to today.

    She is Council member of the GITISA (Gruppo Italiano di Ingegneria Sanitaria Ambientale) Corporation from February 2018.

    She is supervisor of different Master Degree thesis and author of more or less 200 publications (journal publications and proceedings).
