Evaluna Marquez Salazar
Evaluna has a technical background in Chemistry with a strong interest in the biobased economy. During her studies she worked on several sustainability-related projects where she conducted techno-economic feasibility studies, product development and environmental analyses. Her analytical thinking and experience in the laboratory lead her to oversee the development of our technology. To Evaluna CaffeInk is much more than developing a great idea. It is about becoming pioneers on waste valorisation and demonstrating that nowadays waste equals money.
Julia is passionate about sustainability and she brings her environmental sciences and policies expertise to the team. After a double Master on these topics, she specialized in project management, public speaking, event organisation and moderation, through her career in non-profit organizations and start-ups. Her background in communication and marketing has led her to take care of the communication of CaffeInk, along with the environmental impacts and footprint of the chemical technics developed by Evaluna.
As an Industrial Ecologist, Eline knows how to think in systems. This focus on the overview allows her to manage the overall process within the team. She has done this before in realising a development project in Surinam and in several other projects she managed within another start-up and as a consultant circular economy and waste management at Rebel, the Netherlands. Eline likes to drink coffee and she would like to contribute to a more sustainable world where food waste is reduced and reused again. These two interests combined are exactly the reasons why Eline joined the team.
