The PCE team, led by Gabriel Billon, includes 12 assistant professors and professors, 1 professor belonging to the French Water Agency and 2 emeritus scientists. It belongs also to the Institute of the Environment (IRePSE) from U-Lille.
The main objectives of this team are to respond to environmental issues and to contribute to a better knowledge of:
- fundamental physico-chemical processes in natural environments by using chemical models to better understand these processes;
- the origin and fate of metallic and organic contaminants in natural systems (water, aerosol and sediment) including the development of new monitoring tools; and more recently
- water treatment processes.
This research is carried out through methodological and analytical developments to tackle issues of speciation and reactivity, not only at the macroscopic but also at the molecular scale. The objects of observation are continental and coastal water bodies, sediments and waters during treatment processes, as well as atmospheric aerosols.
The activity of the PCE team is divided into 2 axes
In addition, the PCE team plays a key role in three technological platforms of the LASIR: Trace Analysis, Electronic Spectroscopy and Micro Raman.
Concerning teaching, the staff of the PCE team are significantly involved in the organisation and management of the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in chemistry, and more particularly in the Master “Water Treatment”, as well as in the management of the SMRE Doctoral School.
