Nicolas Rogy is a PhD student of the Elsa team of INRAE. He is a process engineer, graduated from Polytechnique Montreal (Canada) and from Chimie ParisTech (France). His thesis topic consists in the development of methods to take into account environmental feedbacks (e.g. climate change, water resources depletion) on human activities, in the methodology of territorial LCA. The developments of the thesis are applied to irrigated perimeters.
Since March 2022, Karine Dufossé is a research engineer in the ELSA team of the UMR ITAP at INRAE. She is currently working on the European project MULTISOURCE (evaluation of nature-based solutions for urban water treatment, https://multisource.eu/), with the use of life cycle assessments (LCA) at the scale of technologies and then of the territory; and soon on the CALALOU project (evaluation of local agriculture in Guadeloupean food and nutrition https://umr-moisa.cirad.fr/l-unite/projets-de-recherche/public-projet-calalou).
She holds a PhD in environmental sciences (2013) from AgroParisTech, in connection with the UMR Ecosys at INRAE Grignon, with a focus on the environmental assessment of lignocellulosic biomass crops for the production of 2nd generation biofuels, with field experience in GHG measurement and mathematical modelling, with a particular focus on N2O emissions, for their integration in crop LCAs. Interested in the modelling of agricultural ecosystems, she also carried out a PostDoc, also in the UMR Ecosys, on dynamic and spatialized cadastres of ammonia (NH3) emissions linked to nitrogen fertilization in France (ADEME Amp’Air and PolQA projects).
Karine graduated as a general engineer from INSA Rouen (2010), with a specialisation in industrial and environmental risk management, and holds a Master of Science in Land and Natural Resources Management from Cranfield University (UK) (2010). She was a contract employee at AgroParisTech (2014) and then a teacher-researcher at UniLaSalle Rennes, on the theme of environmental assessments from 2018 to 2022.
The themes of this research are: environmental assessment, LCA, GHG, agriculture, nature-based solutions.
Charlotte Pradinaud is an agricultural engineer from Montpellier SupAgro (2013) specialized in the management of water, cultivated areas and environment.
She joined for the first time the ELSA team in 2013 for her end-of-studies internship which objective was to achieve the LCA study of a biofuel produced from macroalgae (IDEALG project). After a year abroad, she rejoined the team as a PhD student at IRSTEA, as part of the industrial Chair ELSA -PACT.
Her thesis is generally related to the Water Footprint & LCA methods, and more specifically to the development of an indicator for the impact on water quality.
Mélissa CORNELUS was a Research Engineer, working for EVEA (a consultancy firm dedicated to LCA and eco-design ) and since 2020 responsible for “GIS – Evaluation environnementale des produits agricoles et alimentaires”. As an agronomist engineer (Master’s degree, 2010) specialized in sustainable production of biomolecules, materials and fuels from agricultural raw materials, Mélissa joined the ELSA team since 2011 to work on the project named Salinalgue.
This project aims at developing a sustainable process to produce biofuel from microalgae. Her mission is to assess the environmental impacts using the Life Cycle Assessment methodology. Comparing different options, assessing environmental impacts of each step will permit to build a sustainable and well-thought process.
Topics : Life cycle assessment, microalgae, biofuels, bio-refinery, MFA.
