A new generation of engineers

Post Master Biorefinery: bioenergy, bioproducts & biomaterials

Plant biomass, toward a green future

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.

Based on scientific expertise of Grenoble INP-Pagora coming from its innovative research 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.
