The Institute for Separation Chemistry in Marcoule (ICSM)

Created in January 2007, the Marcoule Institute in Separation Chemistry (ICSM) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 5257) between the the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the University of Montpellier (UM) and the National Graduate School of Chemistry in Montpellier (ENSCM). ICSM is composed of 8 research teams or laboratories working in close collaboration (see the 2017-2020 scientific report, pdf) format).

It is also attached to the Balard chemistry cluster, which brings together the four Montpellier chemistry institutes, including the Institut Européen des Membranes (IEM), the Institut Charles Gerhardt de Montpellier (ICGM) and the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM).

Integrated into the MUSE chemistry cluster and the Institute of Sciences and Technologies for a Circular Economy of Low-Carbon Energies (ISEC) of the CEA's Energy Direction (CEA/DES), the ICSM aims to develop fundamental research whose main objective is to "propose choices" for the development of separative chemistry processes applied to the field of decarbonized energies, by integrating the challenges of a sustainable nuclear energy and the circular economy.
