F. Goettmann (M) obtained his PhD in Materials Chemistry from the University Paris VI (France) in 2005. After a post-doctoral stay focusing on metal substitution in catalytic applications at the Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam (Germany) he joined the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) in 2007 where he held several positions all related to separative chemistry, from basic research up to process development. In 2015 he co-founded Extracthive where he acts as the CTO. Frédéric possesses a strong expertise in solvothermal and ionothermal process development
Vanessa Amaral Oliveira
V. A. Oliveira (F) obtained her PhD in Materials Science and Engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technology (France) in 2016. During her thesis, she worked in a collaborative work between the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and ECM Greentech on the optimisation of a new crystal growth method of silicon for photovoltaic applications. At Extracthive, she is in charge of the international development of the company.
E. Lefebvre (F) joined Extracthive on a work training program in September 2016 for her final year of a Master’s degree in Mineral Resources Engineering and Exploitation Management at Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines d’Alès. At Extracthive, she is in charge of studying the different legacy mining wastes in France and the possible solutions for their remediation.
Q. Ricoux (M) obtained PhD in Hyrometallurgy 2015. He worked on the development of hydrometallurgical separation processes to extract traces of PGM from complex matrices using selective adsorption and precipitation. He did his PhD with a start-up company, Magpie-Polymers, that provides phosphorus based polymer for the selective adsorption of metals. At Extracthive Quentin is in charge of EW and IX.
