Statement of interest: I am affiliated with the Plymouth State University (NH) Center for the Environment. I have researched the mining and marketing of tanzanite in Tanzania. Currently I am working on the sustainability issues created by the manufacture and use of recreational boats. These issues include, but are not limited to, the use of carbon fiber and fiberglass in their construction. End of life disposition of these boats has been ill-addressed. The marine industry is aware of this problem, but the market for recycled construction materials is limited. The European Union and its member states, including France and the Netherlands, have been working on this problem, the US less so.

Geographical/topical area of interest: Tanzania, United States, France, Netherlands
