I was born on March 23 1974 in Tehran, Iran. I studied in Tehran in 1998/2014. I graduated of Bachelor's Degree course of studies in the field of Natural Resources Engineering (Environment) on July 22 1998 at Islamic Azad University, North Tehran Branch. I first came to Master's Degree as a in the field of Environmental Management at Islamic Azad University (IAU) Science & Research Tehran Branch in the year 2003, after receiving my bachelor in Environmental Engineering at the University of Islamic Azad University in 1998. I was Top Ten in 2000 whit degree 7 in internal exam in Islamic Azad University (IAU) Science & Research Tehran Branch.
I published two books “Recycling management” and “Direction of waste Source Separation” in 2003 and 2004. Mr Ghalibaf mayor’s Tehran gave me 2 Gold Coin for publishing the paper “ economic study on the source separation “ in 2006 in the day of Clean Earth in Tehran’s municipality .
Among my many activities, I worked as an expert in ISO 14000, cooperating with the Tehran air quality control Co. and training in water & waste water co. Although I officially worked during 1998/2007, I never stopped studying in the university. I first came to Malaysia as a PhD candidate – after receiving my Master's Degree in Environmental Management – Life cycle assessment at the University Putra Malaysia in 2007.

Life-cycle assessment (LCA, also known as life-cycle analysis, ecobalance, and cradle-to-grave analysis) is a technique to assess environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling. Designers use this process to help critique their products. LCAs can help avoid a narrow outlook on environmental concerns by: Compiling an inventory of relevant energy and material inputs and environmental releases; Evaluating the potential impacts associated with identified inputs and releases; Interpreting the results to help make a more informed decision
Source separation may refer to: Signal separation, the analysis of mixtures of signals Blind source separation, the separation of a set of source signals from a set of mixed signals, without the aid of information (or with very little information) about the source signals or the mixing process Source separation (recycling), where each material is cleaned and sorted prior to collection Waste sorting, the process by which waste is separated into different elements Urine separation, the separate collection of human urine and feces at the point of their production, i.e. at the toilet or urinal

Effective waste management has been greatly restricted by insufficient statistical data on the generation, processing and waste disposal. This study was undertaken in the municipality of Tehran. A total of 6,060 samples were compared by statistically comparing source generation, destination and intermediate stations. The results from these analyses showed that the average per capita waste generation in Tehran was 589 g day(-1). It was also observed that, of the total amount of waste generated in the municipality of Tehran, 73% was domestic waste and 27% was non-domestic waste. In addition, 68% of total household waste was organic waste, while 41% of non-domestic waste was organic waste. Furthermore, 61% of waste in Tehran was generated at the source, while 72% of the waste coming into the Aradkoh disposal and processing center was organic waste. The physical analysis was showed that there was no significant difference between the wastes generated in 2004 and those generated in 2009 and that there was not equal percentage of wet waste coming into the disposal center with urban service stations. This indicates that active source separation programs in metropolitan Tehran.
