Eric Guibal (Biography
Eric Guibal

Dr. Guibal obtained a doctorate (PhD) in waste management from the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA) de Lyon (France) in 1990, after getting his diploma from French engineering school, Ecole des mines d’Alès, in 1986. He has published about 200 scientific publications. He is developing a research at the frontier between environmental engineering and material sciences, “playing” with the properties of biopolymers, ionic liquids and metal ions for designing new materials and applications (metal extraction, wastewater treatment, supported catalysis, etc.). Dr. Guibal is currently co-editor of this journal (Current Applied Polymer Science), published by Bentham Science Publishers.
