Ana Luisa is developing an integral approach to dealing with toxic waste management in Uruguay. She is creating new technologies to recycle and dispose of hazardous materials in responsible ways, while promoting transparency, spreading environmental and public health awareness, and creating decent jobs for waste management workers. Ana Luisa has for example designed Uruguay's first toxic waste tracking technology as well as the first machines dedicated to the safe destruction of fluorescent lamps and cathode ray tubes, which contain high amounts of mercury.
