Hervé BREQUEL holds a PhD in Materials Science Engineering (1996) from the University of Nancy (France) and also an Engineering Diploma in Chemical Engineering and Processes. He is currently R&D Manager at CTP since 2010, supervising directly 5 projects at Belgian or European level (Interreg, ERDF) with focus on development of pilot treatment and processes of solid waste. One of those projects, VALDEM, is dedicated to the enhanced processing of demolition waste in order to promote a better valorisation of such materials. Dr Bréquel has more than 20 years of applied research experience in collaboration with European partnership (France, Italy, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium). Previously, he was employed in the industry (ERAMET group, Manganese division) as Pilot Facility Manager and Research Engineer for the copper recycling unit. Before that, he was appointed as R&D Manager and Quality Control Manager in the refractory industry (Vesuvius group, Preiss-Daimler refractory Group).

Francesco DI Maio is currently research director of the Recycling Laboratory at Delft University of Technology. After his MSc in Chemical Engineering, Francesco finished his PhD study in Environmental Technical Physics in the Department of Technical Physics at Palermo University. During the post-doctoral work at Tsinghua University in Beijing, he has been involved in the construction of the building energy research center located within the school of Architecture. In 2015 Francesco received a MBA from the Rotterdam School of Management. Within the Resources & Recycling group at Delft University of Technology he has been involved in research on Waste Separation, Recycling, Resource Efficiency and Circular Economy issues.

Patrick ROUGEAU is engineer for construction materials and gained his doctorate in the durability of concrete in storage facilities for radioactive waste. 25 years experience in the domain of R&D concerning construction materials with hydraulic binders, new types of concrete (ultra-high performance concrete, low carbon dioxide concrete) as well as their durability (performance-based approach and modelling). He is responsible for the material and process unit of CERIB (R&D center for precast industry).

Valérie SCIAMANNA obtained a PhD in Materials Science from the Engineering Faculty of the University of Mons (UMONS, Belgium) in 2010. She first studied at the Faculty of Science of UMONS and holds a Master degree in Chemistry. She is working as a researcher at “Centre Terre et Pierre (CTP)” since 2017. She is involved in various projects including Valdem which aims to promote the recycling of construction and demolition waste. Before joining CTP, she worked as R&D project manager in the field of geopolymers (Geogrind) and as research and teaching assistant in the Materials Science Department of the University of Mons (research activities focused on cements and ceramics).
