Previously he has been a student at Politecnico di Milano and completed his thesis on remanufacturing at the Fraunhofer Institute in Bayreuth, Germany. He states: “For me, remanufacturing, or widely the circular economy, is more than just the sector where I work or a topic I like: it is an industrial paradigm that I believe able to conjugate the environmental benefit and economic activity; two concepts that unfortunately are often seen in antheses. I believe that for the growth of the sector it is important a strong political representation, which can be achieved through an association like APRA, which I’ve joined as Ambassador to sustain and enlarge over time.” We welcome Lorenzo on board for improving our services and growing our network in Italy.
