Professor Patrick Drogui’s primary areas of research focus on devising and developing new technologies to eliminate pollutants (both inorganic and organic). Electrotechnologies, which consist of processes that leverage electrochemical properties and applications, figure among these techniques. These can be efficiently used to enhance existing municipal and industrial wastewater treatment systems or to replace inefficient conventional technologies designed to remove specific inorganic or organic contaminants.
Mr. Drogui has worked as a research associate at the Centre Eau Terre Environnement, as well as an industrial researcher at BIOLIX Corporation and a consultant at Water Diamond. He holds a bachelor’s degree in physics and chemistry, a master’s in chemistry, a M.A.S. in organic chemistry, and a doctorate in water treatment processes.
