About me

Albert van Oostrom

I have over 31 years experience in waste management research and consulting, both in New Zealand and internationally. I specialise in the management of organic wastes and odour from primary production and processing industries.

 

For 14 years I worked as a scientist and consultant in the Environmental Management Team at MIRINZ Food Technology and Research Ltd (formerly Meat Industry Research Institute of New Zealand), where I held a leadership position for 5 years.

 

In October 1999, I established my own consulting practice, providing a range of waste management services to meat processing companies and other clients.
