Florent Bourgeois



My field of expertise is particulate process design and modelling, with emphasis on physico-chemical separation processes, comminution, solid-liquid separation, mineral liberation, texture modeling and sampling of minerals and solid wastes. The current focus of my research is CO2 utilization by mineralisation for production of alternative low-carbon construction materials, with projects dedicated to valorization of pyrometallurgical slags (eg. ferronickel slags from New-Caledonia), WtE residues (BA/FA) and concrete wastes. In addition to my involvement with development and promotion of the ETV (Environmental Technology Verification) scheme, I also contribute my experience in statistical data analysis to the area of probabilistic risk analysis.
