Mr Malusi Mkhize

Malusi Mkhize
 
Driven by his stint (4 years) as a process engineer in the Fast-Moving Consumer Good (FMCG) sector, Malusi is an innovative driven engineer/researcher and a qualified Energy Management Systems (EnMS) National Expert.

He has patented work on the novel methods for polymeric residues valorisation through thermochemical treatment. Malusi's current research interests lies in the existing technology improvements and new technology start-ups in order to realise a biorefinery-based industry.
