Summary

Plant biomass is a source of energy, materials and chemical products whose vast and renewable potential is paving the way to an oil-free future. In a biorefinery operation, components from biomass can be extracted, isolated and modified to produce gaseous or liquid fuels as well as specialty and commodity chemicals. The latter may in turn be converted into biomaterials.

Objectives

The Post Master is aimed at a student or professional public, French or foreign - already holding a master's degree, an engineering degree or equivalent - wishing to specialize in this theme in order to work in new developments related to biomaterials that affect progressively various industrial sectors: packaging of the future based on non-food renewable materials, boom of the biorefinery in the paper industry, new applications around biomaterials in the chemical industry, etc.

Specificities

Based on scientific expertise of Grenoble INP-Pagora coming from its innovative research (LPG2) in the conversion of plant biomass components and strong links with industry, the Post Master Degree covers the entire chain from biorefinery to the production of bioenergy, bioproducts and biomaterials.

This whole chain is today considered as the most exciting and efficient move towards a sustainable society and a provider of new job opportunities.
