Gunvor Marie Kirkelund is an Associate Professor at the Department of Environmental and Resource Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark. She conducts research on upgrading of hazardous waste to secondary raw materials and valorisation of particulate waste materials in construction materials (concrete, bricks, and alkali-activated materials). The research takes to offset the societal need for a sustainable construction sector and uses experimental methods for material pretreatment, characterization, and mechanical and environmental testing. Among her current activities is the recovery of metals and nutrients from incineration fly ash by an electrodialytic process and finding reuse options for the treated mineral residue. She is active in international research collaboration and is participating in two new European research projects starting in 2022. Gunvor Marie Kirkelund received her PhD in Civil Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark in 2005
