17 March 2022 - FARE co-organises a workshop on pre-treatment of plant biomass at BIOKET

This workshop, organised by Carnot 3BCAR and INRAE with contributions of academic and industrial stakeholders aimed at presenting the state of the art of the physico-chemical pre-treatments for overcoming recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass.

The objective of the workshop was to present the latest advances in pre-treatments, their mechanisms of action, their advantages and their technical limitations, including the coupling of pre treatments. The economic and environmental impacts of these pre-treatments as well as examples of applications in the industry were also discussed in a round-table.
Specific presentations were made on the following pretreatments: dry fractionation techniques to modify the reactivity of biomass with very low energy and environmental costs; continuous twin-screw extrusion to deconstruct biomass or improve the properties of fibre boards; microwaves for the extraction of compounds of interest; steam explosion to increase reactivity to hydrolysis.
