Valorization of glycerol Study of an heterogeneous chemical and enzymatic hybrid catalytic process for the valorization of glycerol

, par Dominique Richard

This project aiming at the valorization of glycerol through hybrid catalysis is funded by SAS PIVERT.

In the context of the valorization of biomass and more particularly of glycerol, the production of compounds with high added value is an essential issue in order to make future third generation biorefineries profitable. The project consists in developing a completely innovative reactor in order to compartmentalize two types of catalysis, one
chemical and the other enzymatic.

The catalytic system developed in the framework of the project will be tested with the aim of studying coupling in terms of performance, kinetics and stability.
