Funding – 2011

Biomaterials and Energies

Biomass is one of the most promising options among renewable energy sources.

The economic and environmental sustainability of solutions proposed is required to use Biomass as a source of energy. The co-valorization Energy/co-products through the development of greenchemical processes associated with energy production could allow to achieve the economical and environmental sustainability of the bioenergy industry.

Bio-ME is a new programme, based on the former “Bioenergies” programme which had financed three calls for proposals from 2008 to 2010. This new programme focuses on the concept of biorefinery. It aims at the valorization of all components of biomass to produce energy and co-products for chemical industry, in order to achieve the economical and environmental sustainability.

The programme aims to develop multidisciplinary public/private partnership structures and implement innovative scientific and technical actions. The main objectives are:

  • promoting initiatives allowing a better mobilization of resources, increasing the productivity of the existing processes while reducing the inputs;
  • developing processes optimizing the industrial conversion of lignocellulosic biomass in energy;
  • developing technological fields optimizing co-valorization product/energy;
  • enhancing innovation particularly in the field of production of bio-lipids and other components by action of microorganisms.

Bio-ME is organized in four thematic lines:

  1. THE RESOURCE: MOBILIZATION, PRECONDITIONING AND PROCESSES
  2. DEVELOPMENT OF THERMOCHEMICAL BIOMASS CONVERSION PROCESSES
  3. DEVELOPMENT OF BIOLOGICAL CONVERSION PROCESSES
  4. TECHNOLOGICAL BRICKS
