Audrey Breton, "process water" team leader in the TRTG Industrial Division (Normandy)

 

Audrey Breton is a chemical engineer who graduated from the ENSIACET of Toulouse (an engineering school specialized in chemical and technological arts). She earned a competency certificate in water treatment and management from the CNAM Midi-Pyrénées and a PhD from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse (INPT), for work on a biofiltration process.

 

After gaining five years of experience in a laboratory, Audrey Breton joined the Total group in Lacq, in 2014, as an engineer in charge of the water treatment laboratory. She is in charge of research, development and process optimization and is therefore considered highly competent in biotreatment. As part of the job, Audrey manages research projects for different Group branches, both in-house and in collaboration with external partners (Suez, Veolia, GE, INSA, University of Madrid, etc.). She also takes part in site audits, diagnoses and assessment campaigns, where she identifies anomalies, improvements to be made, and makes technical recommendations. Audrey has contributed to the development of software utilities for the Group, such as the water treatment database (water treatment decision-making utility).

 

In September 2017, Audrey Breton joined the TRTG (TOTAL Research & Technology Gonfreville) as "process water" team leader in the Water-Refining-Chemicals team of the Industrial Division.
