Reconquest of biodiversity; remediation of degraded and anthropic areas, prevention of environmental health risks; eco-innovation; Green industry ... The current French ambitions are closely related to an interdisciplinary approach to scientific ecology, all of which participate in the expected industrial renewal.
Ecocatalysis explores the unusual combination of phytotechnologies adapted to pollution, ecological rehabilitation of polluted sites and enhancement of these processes through innovative green chemistry, all of which contribute to the development of scientific priorities; economic, ecological innovation and current environmental, of biomass conversion and transition from fossil fuels to renewable.
Environmental engineers, chemical engineers, industrial engineers, scientists, biochemists, facility managers.
Advanced undergraduate and post-graduates in the fields of Chemistry, Chemical technology, Chemical Engineering, Environment technology. Elective in Biocatalysis/Biotransformation
