The GEPEA Laboratory, CNRS (French National Centre for Research) Joint Research Lab 6144, aims to develop process engineering for two main fields of application: bioresources and ecotechnology.
This UMR (Joint Research Lab) has an excellent reputation and genuine specificities both nationally and internationally in processes for developing marine bioresources. The excellence of its research is strengthened by the implementation of platforms such as AlgoSolis (for the protection of micro-algae), PREVER (development of bioresources and biomass residues with the platform) and SafeAir (treatment of air toxics).
THIS JOINT RESEARCH LAB HAS TWO RESEARCH FOCUSES AND FIVE TEAMS
"Processes for Bioresources" Focus
- BAM Team: Bioprocesses applied to micro-algae
- MAPS Team: Matrices - food - processes - properties - structure - sensorial
- TEAM Team: Treatment - water - air - metrology
- OSE Team: Optimisation - systems - energy
- VERTE Team: Energy development - residue matter - emissions treatment
