Yannick Rivoira is a sustainability engineer in the CEA-Leti's eco-innovation program. Initially formed in mechanical engineering, he oriented the end of his studies on the comprehension of environmental issues and the tools to contribute to the ecological transition. He joined the eco-innovation program in early 2022 with a master's degree in eco-design, focusing on life cycle assessment.
To understand and reduce the environmental impact of technologies developed at CEA-Leti, life cycle assessments are employed. Despite the power of this tool, a better understanding of the data modeled and the life cycle of the products used is required.
CEA-Leti analyzes both technologies and data to reduce its own impact and to support industrial companies in their environmental transition. One of the focus is on the center's final emissions, in the air for gases and in water for effluents. Different types of treatment exist and their environmental analysis through life cycle assessment enables relevant choices to be made and eco-design options to be identified.
