The CNRS Increase network: a step forward for green chemistry.

Almost 200 researchers from eight French laboratories and chemical industry manufacturers are banking on biomass.

The aim of this new network is not to produce molecules or materials similar to those found on the market, but to create renewable products offering superior performance.

Biomass contains numerous molecules of interest (sugars, oils, aromatic compounds, amino acids, etc.) that today’s chemists are able to separate and transform.

It therefore finds applications in a host of sectors, from cosmetics to construction materials through the pharmaceutical and food and drink industries.
