Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou

Hélène Olivier-Bourbigou is carrying out research at IFP Energies nouvelles on homogeneous catalysis for applications in the chemicals sector, employing a dual academic and industrial approach.

The aim of her research is to develop catalysts for industrial processes thaat transform petroleum and plant raw materials into substances with a higher added value for use by the chemicals industry. The purpose of our work, therefore, is to improve catalysts, generate faster reactions (energy savings), reduce overall catalyst consumption, reduce waste, etc… in line with a more sustainable approach to chemistry.
