Dr Antoine Leybros is an engineer from ECM (Ecole Centrale de Marseille) and received M.S. degree in Process Engineering and Environmental Sciences at the University of Aix-Marseille in 2006. Her PhD Thesis from University of Aix Marseille in 2009 focused on the experimental and modelling study of the destruction of polyphasic systems (ion exchange resins) in supercritical water. From 2009 to 2010, he contributed on the development of a continuous process of nanoparticles synthesis in supercritical water medium with computational fluid dynamic modelling studies aiming to study the influence of operating parameters on size and morphology of nanoparticles, in the Nanostructured Materials Laboratory (Carnot Interdisciplinary Laboratory Burgundy). From 2011 to 2012, he works on the study of reliability and optimization of supercritical water oxidation process considering corrosion and geometry optimization issues. His research work since 2014 focused on the development of supercritical fluid and solid and liquid decontamination processes considering metal and natural substances extraction, supercritical water oxidation process, etc. He supervises doctoral degrees students. 

He is co-author of 17 papers and 2 patents.



His main current research interests includes:

  • Extraction of primary resources/raw materials and recycling processes using subcritical/supercritical fluids
  • Decontamination processes of solids (soils and concrete) using subcritical/supercritical fluids
  • Treatment of liquid/solid organic waste by mineralization using supercritical water oxidation
  • Extraction/fractionation of lipids, carotenoids and triglycerides from microalgae using supercritical CO2
  • Development of in situ/in operando analytical methods with supercritical fluid reactors coupling
  • Modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics for supercritical water oxidation processes
