As an Industrial Ecologist, Monica applies a systematic approach to deliver solutions for sustainability problems. This implies integrating engineering, environmental and social science perspectives for identifying, designing and evaluating solutions to sustainable development.   

As an engineer, she is passionate about researching and applying the latest practices and technologies about sustainable agriculture, while understanding the ecosystem services and the relationship between organisms and their environment.

 While pursuing one of her passion in life – traveling, she observed first hand the need for sustainable development and the inequalities that the world is facing, especially in developing countries. Therefore she continued her environmental education, and studied Industrial Ecology (IE), the scientific field of sustainability, and dedicated her career to building more sustainable societies.

 Using the IE approach, the  behaviour  of complex integrated human/natural systems is mapped and understood, and the sustainability issues are examined from multiple perspectives: societal, environmental, economic and technological.

 In Except Monica discovered a dynamic team sharing her passion and dedication for sustainability, that uses an innovative approach in accelerating the frontier to sustainability.   At Except, she is creating tools aimed at improving the operation of multinational corporations, performs energy and material flow analyses, and creates strategies for complex challenges.

 She applies the same passion for sustainability in her personal life, where during her volunteer work with WWF she brings awareness for local communities on how to live a more sustainable life. She also works closely with educational institutions in providing knowledge through events and presentations for the next generations of sustainable minds.


Serenity Farms

Jul 09, 2020, Sustainable food production in arid regions

Serenity Farms is a concept for a sustainable 110ha greenhouse facility for profitable food production in arid climates. The first site is to be located on the west coast of Saudi Arabia, under the vision of the Reza Investment Company. The core of Serenity Farms is a high tech food production solution that provides fresh fruits and vegetables for 170.000 people. It sources and treats water from renewable sources exclusively such as seawater, and is powered by the sun.
