Pyrène Larrey-Lassalle (2009-2017)

Pyrène Larrey-Lassalle is engineer in environmental processes, particularly eco-processes, from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) of Toulouse. After working in a private consulting agency in eco-design and LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), she joined the ELSA team in October 2009. At that time she is in charge of managing and carrying out two industrial and institutional research projects in LCA: ANR COPOTERM (Innovative process for metal recovery in industrial wastewater) and ANR DEMETHER (Valorization of agricultural by-products for the production of a new insulation material). She is also involved in training for professionals and students, and conducts LCA studies and critical reviews (expertise) for private firms and/or consulting companies.

From March 2014, she begins a thesis (funded by the Industrial Research Chair ELSA-PACT) about the “Harmonization of environmental assessment methods: Convergence of “product-oriented” (LCA) and “site-oriented” approaches used in impact assessment studies – Application to examples in water management”.

Topics:  Environmental Assessment, Life cycle assessment, Site-oriented approach, Agro-bio-processes, Water management

Mary Hanhoun (2011 – 2012)

Mary Hanhoun is a civil engineer (2003) and a PhD in process and environmental engineering from INP of Toulouse (2011).

In October 2011, Mary joined the ELSA as a post-doc to work on the Phosph’OR project. This project aims to develop recycling processes for phosphorus with agricultural purposes. Mary’s mission is to assess the environmental impact of these processes by the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), assess the impacts of each process with a view to application in agriculture and to build a sustainable and well-thought process.

Topics: Life cycle assessment, wastewater treatment processes, phosphorus recycling
