Alberto Pivato was born on the 12th of January in 1976 in Italy and now lives in Treviso (Italy).
In 2001 he graduated from Environmental Engineering at Padova University presenting a thesis on the industrial risk assessment of the “Porto Marghera” (Venice); the thesis received a mention by the Province of Venice.
From 2001 to 2004 he worked on his Ph.D. program spending two terms in other universities: in 2003 (3 months) at the DTU University (Denmark) under the supervision of Prof. Christensen and in 2004 (6 months) at the TUHH Department (Hamburg, Germany) under the supervision of Prof. Stegmann. With this experience he greatly improved his knowledge of ecotoxicology and methodologies to assess landfill emissions.
In 2004 Alberto Pivato completed his doctorate in Environmental Engineering at the IMAGE Department of University with a thesis concerning “Performance-based methodology for assessing the landfill aftercare end-point”.
The last few years the research activities have focused on the application of support decision tools such as risk analysis, LCA and Environmental Impact assessment. Regarding these topics he participated in the working groups of CTD (National Landfill Committee) and IWWG (International Waste Working Group).
Since 2005 Alberto Pivato has been working for a private company in the field of environmental engineering and planning as Project Manager. In 2007, he received a special mention by one of the most important national concourses on planning (Piccinato Concorso) for his work on a methodology for the assessment of a ranking for industries in terms of sustainability.
He has collaborated with many public administrations and he has been member of different commissions: Quarry commission of the province of Treviso; occupational safety commission; etc.
During 2008-2009 he was Affiliated Professor of the course “Waste recovery” for the International MSc Programme in Environmental Engineering at the University of Padova and since 2009 he has been Affiliated Professor of the “Ecotoxicology”course for the same Msc course.
Alberto Pivato has participated in numerous conferences and he was scientific secretary of the International Symposium Sardinia 2003. He has written many papers for national and internationals journals.
The current research field are ecotoxicology, waste management, environmental Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis.
