Thierry JACQUET

Biography

A native of France, Thierry Jacquet is an expert in phytoremediation technology. He is also a veritable pioneer in this young field, as he has been studying ways of transforming our current water purification systems into natural filtering gardens for nearly 20 years.

As he was conducting his research, Thierry realized that, while controlling pollution using plants is often studied by scientists, it was never implemented. He decided to establish the world’s first bioferme, or bioremediation farm, one hour from Paris. He then started his own company, Phytorestore, dedicated to environmental remediation.
