Jocelyn Doucet holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Polytechnique Montréal where he is Adjunct Professor since 2011. During his graduate studies, he started a first company focusing on in chemical process scale up and commercialization and developed few innovative processes for international clients. Some of his inventions had applications in the field of protein extraction, therapeutic agents and food processing. He then picked up opportunities to work on resource efficiency and decided to launch a new project based on microwaves to break down molecules into their original constituents. This idea led to the creation of Pyrowave in 2014, a company that has now developed the World’s most advanced High Power Microwave technology platform that will lead the process electrification revolution.
