Pacôme Tomietto laureate of the CFM 2020-2021 “J.-C. Rouch” PhD thesis Prize

Pacôme Tomietto is the laureate of the 2020-2021 “J.-C. Rouch” PhD Thesis national prize awarded by the Club Français des Membranes (CFM). This award distinguishes French PhD students for the excellence of the research work accomplished in the field of synthetic membranes materials and processes.

Pacôme Tomietto was born in 1993 in Valognes (50, France). He studied chemistry at Ecole européenne de Chimie, Polymères et Matériaux (ECPM) and Strasbourg University where he specialized in polymer science. He was graduated of engineering and master degree in 2017. He then joined (2017 – 2020) the “Chemistry and Process Engineering” team (CIP) of the Rennes Institute of Chemical Sciences for his PhD supervised by Dr Jean-Luc Audic, Dr Patrick Loulergue and Dr Lydie Paugam.

During three years, his work consisted in the development of new and more sustainable materials for liquid phase separations using biopolymers. More especially, synthetic membranes suitable for separation techniques employed in the field of water treatment (microfiltration) or organic solvents mixture separation (pervaporation) have been fabricated from a bacterial-based biodegradable biopolymer family (the polyhydroxyalkanoates, PHA) and green non-toxic and biobased solvents. In short, this thesis offers more environmentally friendly perspectives in the field of membrane separation.

After the Foundation of Rennes 1 Professor Pierre Gineste chemistry thesis prize 2020, he receives this year the “J.-C. Rouch” PhD Thesis national prize awarded by the Club Français des Membranes (CFM) for his work during his PhD studies.

Pacôme is currently working as Material Engineer at Decathlon (France).

He would like to thank the CFM committee and all his co-workers from the ISCR and the ITM-CNR (Italy) for their support.
