MatBio - Multiscale biobased materials

Group leader

Julien BRAS, Associate Professor / HDR*

Research areas

Building blocks from vegetal biomass

Biomolecules, bio-based polymers, nano-polysaccharides, fibres.
♦ Chemical modification of nanopolysaccharides.
♦ Valorisation of annual plants and agro-waste.
♦ Development of characterization tools.

Suspensions & blends: material process engineering

Unit operations in papermaking, converting and manufacturing processes for plastics and composites: from building blocks to materials.
♦ Manufacturing processes in concentrated medium: extrusion, compression…
♦ Filtration and impregnation.
♦ Rheology of functional suspensions.

Composites and fibre-based materials

♦ Fields of application: packaging, special papers, transport, health or construction.
♦ Paper and multilayer.
♦ Bio-based composites.
♦ Non impregnated bio-based materials.
