Developing biofuels is a priority for the aerospace industry in the coming years : the challenge lies in reducing the environmental impact of this industry, increasing energetic self-sufficiency and securing energy supplies. The ProBio3 Research Programme, which has been granted funding by the (...) suite
Launched in 2011 for a period of 5 years, the EIMA programme, certified by 3 competitiveness clusters, is aimed at producing molecules of interest on an industrial scale based on the digestion of alternative substrates to glucose (by-products of the dairy and sugar industry, cellulosic (...) suite
The DAGOIL project backed by the ANR(1) as part of the Carnot – Fraunhofer 2011 programme, is based on a new approach which focuses on nutritional and technological aspects. The main objective of this project is to validate the health benefits of DAG-enriched vegetable oil and develop an (...) suite
