Arrival of Zoe Legeai – CARIBSAN Project

Zoé Legeai joined the REVERSAAL research unit on January 3rd, 2022, as a research engineer, for a one-year contract.

She will be part of the CARIBSAN projet, which is developed in partnership with the International Office of Water (IOWater), the Water Offices of Martinique and Guadeloupe, the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources of Cuba (INRH), the Caribbean Association of Water and Sanitation (CAWASA) and the Water and Sanitation Companies of Saint Lucia (WASCO) and Dominica (DOWASCO). This project is co-financed by the European Union through the INTERREG Caraïbes program, the French Development Agency (AFD) as well as the Water Offices of Martinique and Guadeloupe, whose goal is to promote Treatment Wetlands through the Caraibean.

Treatment Wetlands (TW) are nature-based, simple and inexpensive wastewater treatment solutions particularly suited to the climate and fragile ecosystems of the Caraibbean. Zoé’s work will focus on the design of a multicriteria methodology, in order to better assess the technical, economical ad environmental feasibility of a treatment wetland project, taking into account the various local constraints.

Zoé is an energy and environmental engineer who graduated from INSA Lyon in 2021.
