Jean-Luc DUBOIS is Scientific Director at Arkema. He is in charge of Corporate R&D linked with Catalysis, Processes, Renewables and Recycling. He supervises the long-term projects in this area, and builds the relationships with academic partners and companies for collaborative research.

Graduated from the Hautes Etudes Industrielles (HEI), he did a Voluntary Service Overseas in Saudi Arabia at the KFUPM/RI. He obtained his PhD from the Institut Français du Pétrole (French Institute of Petroleum) for his work on Catalysts for Oxidative Coupling of Methane. After a Post-Doctorate at the National Chemical Laboratory for Industry (Tsukuba, Japan) on CO2 conversion, he found a Research Scientist position at the R&D Centre of the refining company elf-antar-france (now TOTAL), and stayed 2 years in the laboratories of Japan Energy in a collaborative research project on Hydrodesulphurization catalysts. He moved to the chemical division of the group, elf-atochem (now in-part Arkema) in 1997, and successively stayed in the R&D Centres in Saint-Avold and Pierre-Bénite (France), where he worked on oxidation catalysts and started several research projects on biomass conversion.

Recently he has been involved in several EU projects on: Biomass conversion and Biorefineries (Eurobioref, Biocore, Cosmos, F3Factory), 3D printing for process technologies (Printcr3Ddit); plastic recycling: Resyntex (textile recycling), MMAtwo (PMMA depolymerization), Multicycle (Selective dissolution of polymer and composites), PolynSpire (depolymerization of polyamides and polyurethanes); Games (serious game to teach basic chemical engineering principles of recycling); BioRECO2VER and BIOCON-CO2 (CO2 conversion); C123 (methane conversion); MAGIC and PANACEA (non-food crops); COSMIC (Microwaves and Ultrasounds); Charming (Virtual and augmented reality for processes).

He is the author of more than 100 publications and 150 patent applications.
