PROGRAMME AT GLANCE
Plenary sponsored by University of Lille
Among the industries present on the port, we will focus the visit on two companies :
PIVERT is an innovative SME anchored at the heart of the Hauts-de-France ecosystem performing industrialisation of agricultural resources valorisation processes.
PIVERT offers 3 service proposals meeting the « Time to Market » challenge and speeding up the whole innovation process, therefore avoiding the need for heavy investment in medium sized equipment and allowing business opportunities at minimal cost:
Lanolines Stella is a world key player in the refining of lanolin products.
ISO 9001/15 and GMP Excipact certified, Lanolines Stella is world wide famous for High Quality products and tailor made customer service.
Its clients are among the most prestigious actors in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors.
Always at the forefront of the most efficient purification technologies, Lanolines Stella now extends its activity to the high-performance purification of vegetable and animal oils and fats.
In the frame of its diversification strategy, Lanolines Stella now offers toll-manufacturing / processing services via a highly technical industrial tool: a full and flexible molecular distillation processing unit (wiped film and short-path evaporators).
Moreover, to better meet the needs of our future customers, we have also invested in a laboratory pilot molecular distillation to determine the most appropriate parameters that meet the objectives of our customers.
Those versatile equipments makes it possible to distil, thus completely eliminate or greatly reduce, heavy compounds or molecules present in oils and fats of our customers.

INRAE: Born January 1, 2020 from the merger of INRA and IRSTEA, INRAE is France's new National Institute for Research on Agriculture, Food and the Environment. This new community of more than 10,000 people is dedicated to carrying out research in Agriculture, Food & the Environment in France and abroad.
3BCAR Carnot Institute mobilizes two key levers for Bioeconomy emergence: Biotechnologies and Green chemistry; gathering multidisciplinary approaches from biomass production, biorefinery until functional properties. Circular economy is considered by waste and byproducts valorization, cascading uses and eco-design.
Plant-based chemistry is a strategic sector of the European bioeconomy through addressing solutions to the economic and environmental challenges faced by the chemical industry. Among the different segments, the (poly)phenols market has grown significantly in the last twenty years and analysts estimate that this trend will continue to grow in the coming years, especially with the demand for “green chemistry”. Phenolic acids, a diversified family with very proven antioxidant properties have in particular attracted considerable attention over the last two decades.
The Carnot 3BCAR network (https://3bcar.fr/en/) 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.
IBISBA (www.ibisba.eu) is an emerging, European-based distributed R&D infrastructure that brings together best-in-class European R&D facilities, including biofoundries, creating a wider framework for accelerated end-to-end bioprocess development, the aim being to rapidly deliver industry-ready processes and thus reduce time to market.
In this session, we will appraise the current state of play in the bio foundry area and examine how biofoundries are likely to evolve in the future. We will focus on the IBISBA concept, looking at how biofoundry activities can be better developed within the wider framework of end-to-end bioprocess development, an approach that is being promoted by IBISBA. Moreover, we will examine some of the challenges related to injecting industry constraints into early phase bioprocess development.
This session will bring together leading researchers from the IBISBA network of research facilities, Prof. Paul Freemont (Imperial College London) who is heading the Global Foundry Alliance and industry players involved in the development of commercial biofoundries. The workshop will be a lively combination of talks and debates in which the audience will be invited to play a full, active role.
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.
