VALUEMAG (EU project's workshop online)

Current major world issues are, on one hand, environmental problems such as global warming and air and ground pollution, and on the other hand, fuel supply. A very promising alternative that is becoming more and more popular consists in the development of microalgae-based bio-refineries.
In this respect, the VALUEMAG project proposes a revolutionary, innovative, and eco-friendly solution to reduce significantly the associated costs, and thus building more efficient microalgae-based  bio-refinery systems.


Welcome

Carnot 3BCAR - online workshop
The Carnot 3BCAR network (3BCAR Website) invites you to a half-day update of the innovation potential of these molecules through a study case of ferulic acid (3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenyl prop-2-eonic acid), a phenolic acid having a consolidated market position with a growth rate stimulated by its diverse applications of significant growth potential: food and beverages industry (flavours, antioxidants), pharmaceutical industry, cosmetic industry (skin creams, sunscreens)… 

The workshop will bring together experts from industry and academia with the aim of identifying future technological and scientific priorities to effectively address challenges of cost competitiveness and scale up of ferulic and other small phenolic molecules.


Workshop co-chaired by:

Hélène ROUX-de-BALMANN –CNRS Université de Toulouse
