The transformation of plant biomass into energy, chemicals and polymers is an important component of the green economy. It contributes to the drastic reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the intensification of recycling and the limitation of waste.
Bioenergy, biofuels, bioproducts and biopolymers are today realities. However, the growth of their production must be considerably accelerated so that their contribution is up to the stakes. This development involves new skills.
The biorefinery is the operation that passes from the plant resource to the production of energy and chemicals. Although similar in definition to what is a refinery, the great diversity of materials and the richness of their chemical composition make the biorefinery a process engineering operation with very specific conditions.
The chemistry associated with it is also different from petrochemistry:
♦ the structure of plant constituents is constructed with three essential atoms (C, H, O) – against two for petroleum (C, H) – which is a source of greater complexity;
♦ these structures represent complex organic architectures, valorizable as such, which can be an asset for the production of products and materials with new properties.
To integrate a Master 1, you must have a degree level 3 or equivalent.
To integrate a Master 2, you must hold a Master 1 or equivalent.
The Master SGM - Biorefinery and Biomaterials Course is open to French and foreign students.
♦ Access in M1 or M2 depending on the level, in initial or in-service training.
♦ Access to M2 open to holders of an M1 in chemistry, biochemistry, processes, polymeric materials or equivalent thematics.
