2 (2)David Warichet is Senior Advisor Metal Coating and Treatment. He graduated as a Civil Engineer in chemical Process Science at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL – Belgium) in 1993.

David started his career as a researcher at the UCL. 20% of his time he worked at a galvanizing plant and Erachem Comilog.

In 1995 he became Process Engineer at GalvaPowerGroup nv, where he was responsible for the pre-study, the engineering (heat recovery, scrubber, purification systems), planning, construction and start-up of one of the most automatic & highest throughput hot dip galvanizing plants. From 2000 till 2012, David worked as R&D manager for ZINQ where he started-up the first 2 batch microZINQ® galvanizing plants worldwide being able to galvanize parts with Zn-5%Al in single dip galvanizing automotive parts of the stringent BMW automotive company. As a researcher, David was granted with 3 patents on galvanization and 4 were applied for granting.
In 2013, he joined the company Deby SPRL where he is working as advisor for key customers in the metal industry. He is also lecturer at the University of Lille in France.

Paul Leroy

Graduate PhD in Mechanics and Materials from the french engineer school Ecole Centrale de Lille, Paul Royes is a specialist of liquid metallurgy and foundry issues. Also graduated from the French School of Foundry and Forge, he has made his experience as a foundry engineer in research fields. It led him to study the recycling of foundry dust by the mean of induction furnace, but also to develop new alloys for the french SMEs, with a deep concern of transferring the innovation technologies from the laboratory to the industrial plants. During his PhD, he developped metal matrix composites casting pilots.
Now being a consultant for the Metal Expert TEAM company, he provides high-level technical support to French and Benleux foundries on metallurgical issues, especially concerning metal liquid environment. He is also a temporary teacher in engineer’s school such as ENSAM, Centrale Lille and Polytech’Lille.
