Carnot 3BCAR

Bioenergies, Biobased molecules et Biobased materials from Renewable CArbone


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

Target markets

  • Biomass production (crops, microalgaes) and plant biotechnologies
  • Biorefinery
  • Industrial biotechnologies
  • Green chemistry: lubricants, surfactants, solvents
  • Fine chemistry: cosmetic and biologically active molecules
  • Bioenergies: biofuel, biogas
  • Biobased materials
  • Ferments and enzymes
  • Environment and waste valorization
  • Agro-industry
  • Territories management

From biomass ... until functional properties

A scientific network of excellence available to boost your innovation
