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”.
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. [...]
Exactly one year after the kick-off meeting of the project, all the partners met again for a day and a half of interdisciplinary scientific exchanges. This time, in the context of Covid19 and lock-down, the meeting was virtual but just as rich and interesting.
The partners of the LOOP4PACK project are pleased to announce that the D4.3 deliverable, “Cartography of characteristics needed for new packagings”, is finished and has been sent to all partners on the 12/06/2020. This deliverable was written by Frédéric Merle (Euramaterials), an abstract is available here.
Fanny Allayaud joined the LOOP4PACK project in January 2020. She is in charge of task 2 concerning the extraction and purification of PHA produced in task 1. We welcome her in the team! Fanny is a Biotechnology Engineer graduated in 2015 from the Polytechnic University of Marseille. She has an expertise in protein purification. Recruited at the CRITT in February 2019, she has worked on various R&D projects, notably [...]
