Ph.D. candidate at Aarhus University (Denmark)
Marco Antonio Rodríguez Domínguez is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Aarhus University (Denmark) working with the Department of Biology, the Centre for Water Technology WATEC, and the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering – Process and Materials Engineering. He is a young researcher and entrepreneur specialized in nature-based solutions for wastewater and waste treatment using constructed wetlands and biorefining processes. In 2009, he finished his bachelor on Environmental Systems Engineering at the Polytechnical National Institute in Mexico. In 2012, he obtained the Master Degree in Water Science at the Mexican Technological Institute of Water in Mexico. In 2020, he wrote the first Latin-American review about Constructed Wetlands, which was published in the Journal Water. In 2020 and 2021, he researches the use of biomass of constructed wetlands for the production of high-value products, like protein, cellulose, and bio-crude using the biorefining process. Marco is the founder of Green Growth Group México SA de CV where he leads projects related to constructed wetlands for wastewater treatment, biorefining and bioproducts projects, environmental consultancy, and water rights in Mexico. He has been an independent consultant since 2011, when he founded the firm S.I.S.A. Soluciones Integrales y Servicios Ambientales, which was absorbed by Green Growth Group México SA de CV in 2014. In Latin America, Marco promotes the constructed wetland technology through the Pan-American Constructed Wetland Network Association (Red Panamericana de Sistemas de Humedales), where he serves as the technical secretary.
