Crop Residue Science

Harnessing the Power of Recycled Biomass

The utilization of agricultural residues as raw materials in a bio-refinery is a promising alternative to fossil resources for production of energy carriers and chemicals, thus mitigating climate change and enhancing energy security.

Focusing on a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) approach, our researchers take into account all the input and output flows occurring along the production chain. This approach can be applied to almost all other patterns that convert lingo-cellulosic residues into bioenergy and bio-chemicals.

The use of crop residues in a bio-refinery saves GHG emissions and reduces fossil energy demand. GHG emissions are reduced by about 50% and more than 80% of non-renewable energy is saved.

Using plants as raw material, it is quite possible to replace fossil carbons with carbons of plant origin in order to produce bio-sourced materials.

A large number of chemical products can be produced using biomass, which is the biodegradable part of biological products, waste and residues. Plant chemistry can also help to reduce the chemical industry’s reliance on fossil resources and to replace highly toxic or pollutant products with more environmentally friendly ones.

Through our industrial infrastructure and our technological expertise in the biotechnology and chemical fields, we have become an essential partner in the development of plant chemistry, bio-plastics and sourcing.

Our Key Objectives:

  • To expand research into renewable chemistry
  • To increase the processing of agricultural raw materials
  • To develop new, economically viable bio-chemicals
