3BCAR

Carnot institute

Bioenergy, Biomolecules and Biomaterials from Renewable Carbon

3BCAR Carnot Institute mobilizes two key levers for Bioeconomy emergence: Biotechnologies and Green chemistry; gathering multidisciplinary approaches from biomass production, biorefinery until functional properties.

Circular economy is considered by waste and byproducts valorization, cascading uses and eco-design.

Presentation

Innovate and support Bioeconomy emergence with Biotechnologies and Green chemistry

Bioeconomy: a model for the future

Faced with diverse actual challenges (sustainable development, fossil resources depletion, climate change…), Bioeconomy is recognised in Europe as a model for the future. Based on production from biological renewable resources conversion, this economical strategy benefits from both technological and systemic approaches.

3BCAR : a multidisciplinary competencies offer


- Plant biomass production with enhanced properties

- Biomass fractionation and biorefinery

- Functionalisation for obtaining building blocks

- Bioproducts formulation and shaping

- Process ecodesign and Production sustainability
