The deliverables D4.1 and D4.3 concerning the cartography of the available resources ( valorizable co-products) and those of the necessary characteristics for the new packaging are now available on the document page of the website D4.1_Cartography-of-available-feedstock-resources v2 D4.3_Cartography-of-characteristics-needed-for-new-packagings v2
Coline Perdrier introduced her thesis work at the RRB 2022 conference (Renewable Resources and Biorefineries) held in Bruges, Belgium, with a poster entitled "Impact of specific feeding rate of propionic acid on the structure (especially %HV) and properties of microbial P(3HB-co-3HV) copolymer”. This was an opportunity to make the LOOP4PACK project internationally known and to discover other teams working on microbial PHAs (from their biosynthesis to their use). Coline [...]
The partners of the LOOP4PACK project are pleased to announce that the deliverable D1.1, "Volatile Fatty Acid (VFA) Production from Potato Peels - Pretreatment of McCAIN By-Products" is finalized. The full document is available here. An abstract is available here.
The partners of the LOOP4PACK project are pleased to announce that the D4.5 deliverable, “1st LCA coupled with valorization chain design and economic study”, is finished the results were presented to all the partners on 14/02/2022 and the final document was sent to all partners on the 04/04/2022. This deliverable was written by Etienne Paul (INSA-TBI), Frédéric Merle (Euramaterials) et Estelle Grousseau (UM-IATE). An abstract is available here. [...]
During the webinar "Agro and Bio resources" organized by the SFGP (Société Française De Génie Des Procédés) section Grand Sud-Ouest, Estelle Doineau - UM-IATE - made a presentation entitled "Valorization of agri/agro by-products for the production and formulation of microbial polyesters for applications in food packaging". The LOOP4PACK project was developed for its contribution on the impact of synthesis, extraction/purification and processing on the functional properties of PHBV-based materials. [...]
All the partners finally met face to face on February 14 and 15, 2022 in Toulouse on the INSA site for the 2nd annual meeting. On the agenda, scientific presentations, discussions, visit of the laboratories of the TBI Symbiose team and the technical hall of the CRITT Bio-Industries. Thanks to INSA for the organization. And thank you all for this very constructive moment of share for the project! [...]
Estelle Doineau joined the LOOP4PACK project as a post-doctoral fellow at UMR IATE in November 2021. She took the opportunity to be part of this project, from the synthesis of PHAs to the development of eco-responsible materials in the packaging application, to strengthen her skills and knowledge in this very rich field. Her role will be to implement and characterize the PHAs produced by the project partners and to [...]
Mattéo Castiello – TBI – had the honor of taking part in the 7th Mixed Microbial Culture PHA, Properties and Applications Workshop, in Valencia (Spain) giving a presentation entitled “P(3HB-co-3HV) production under carbon and phosphorus-limited conditions in non-axenic two-stage continuous culture”.
On the occasion of the 18th International Symposium on Biopolymers (ISBP) in Sion (Switzerland), Mattéo Castiello – TBI – presented his study on the “PHA production by microbial consortia selected in continuous cultures: Modeling the effect of phosphorus limitation and nitrogen deficiency". It was also an opportunity to share and discuss with the scientific community involved in the various biopolymer production sectors. https://www.isbp2022.com/
The partners of the LOOP4PACK project are pleased to announce that the D2.1 deliverable, "Separation and purification of PHA: detailed protocol and influence of the method on the PHA recovery yield and purity and molar mass", is finished and has been sent to all partners on the 30/07/2021. This deliverable was written by Fanny Allayaud (INSA-CRITT Bio-Industries) and validated by Elise Blanchet (INSA-CRITT Bio-Industries), an abstract is available here. [...]
