The research conducted concerns the valuation of naturals materials and waste in development of new process for the removal of pollutants from various media . Removal of textiles dyes , surfactants and ionic metals from waste water is investigated using biosorption onto biomass and activated carbon synthesized from biomass .


Another aspect of this research is the synthesis of bio fuels starting from biomass and wastes. 26 publications in the field of waste water treatment; retention of pollutants using natural biomass; valorization of waste in biofuels production; biosorption; 6 patents (recovery of used engine oils; biofuels ; synthesis of fatty amines) 6 Thesis ; 8 masters Local Coordinator of the Euro-Mediterranean FP7-Regpot project in Tunisia : “ SOWAEUMED “ (2009-2012) :“Network In Solid Waste And Water Treatment Between Europe And Mediterranean » Countries currently local coordinator of the FP7 project FP4BATIW ( 2013-2016) « Fostering Partnerships For The Implementation Of Best Available Technologies For Water Treatment & Management In The Mediterranean”;Erasmus mundus Averroes program (3 years); coordinator of DGRS-CNRS program; Tunisia- Morroco and Tunisia-Egypt ;project…

Education and employment
Ulrich Maschke studied chemistry at the University of Mainz (Germany) where he received his Master’s degree (Diploma) in 1989 working on the phase behavior of polymer blends (PMPS/PS). In 1992 he completed his PhD thesis at the Physics Department of the Max-Planck-Institut für Polymerforschung (MPI-P, Mainz) under the supervision of Prof. Ewen on the ‘Static and dynamic properties of polymer melts studied by neutron scattering’. In 1992 he joined the Laboratory of Macromolecular Chemistry of the University of Sciences and Technologies of Lille (France) where he was offered a job (Chargé de Recherche) within the french national center of scientific research (CNRS). In 2001, he obtained the accreditation to supervise research from the University of Lille (HDR). He is now Research Director of the CNRS (Directeur de Recherche) at the UMET and responsible of a group working mainly on photochemistry and radiochemistry of organic materials.

Main fields of scientific activites
Photochemistry and radiochemistry of organic materials (ultraviolet irradiation, electron beam bombardment, polymerization/crosslinking processes, grafting, surface treatment, polymer coatings….); abatement of brominated products used as flame retardants by radiative treatment; chemically crosslinked polymer networks (synthesis, characterization, swelling/deswelling studies); structural and dynamical properties of polymer blends; dispersions of nano- and micron-sized liquid crystalline domains in polymers (morphology, structure, thermodynamics, kinetics of polymerization/crosslinking and phase separation, experimental and theoretical phase properties, electro-optical behaviour, light-, X-ray- and neutron scattering, mechanical and dielectrical studies…..).

Scientific production
Approximately 170 referenced international publications; several patents; approximately 400 presentations (invited, oral, posters); direction/codirection of 20 defended PhD thesis; many national and international academic and industrial collaborations.
