Frédéric Pouyet, who currently works for Suez Environnement, received the distinction for the research he conducted at the LGP2 laboratory during his PhD – under the supervision of Dominique Lachenal, Professor at Grenoble INP, and Christine Chirat, Associate Professor at Grenoble INP. He presented his thesis in March 2014.

His findings have contributed to the development of new whitening processes based exclusively on the use of reagents oxidized by ozone, rather than the chlorinated reagents universally employed today. The project, entitled Green Bleaching, was made possible by the participation of four leading firms in the field of oxidized reagents: Air Liquide, Degrémont, Arkema and Xylem, whose role is now to promote the solutions proposed. Not only do these solutions significantly reduce environmental impact, they also cut costs.
Another positive outcome of Frédéric Pouyet's work is that it has highlighted new mechanisms through which ozone acts chemically on organic matter, paving the way for the development of innovative applications in other fields, such as water treatment.

He was handed the trophy on 1 December 2015 at a ceremony organised by L’Usine Nouvelle in Paris. The fact that the COP21 event was also taking place at the time brought particular resonance to his award.
