Phenolic acids: from research to market
How to effectively address challenges of cost competitiveness and scale-up in plant-based chemistry?
Plant-based chemistry is one of the strategic sectors of the European bioeconomy because it can provide some answers to the economical and environmental challenges faced by the chemical industry, a key sector of the European economy. Among the different segments of this market, polyphenols have grown significantly in the last twenty years and analysts estimate that this trend will continue in the coming years. Inside polyphenols, phenolic acids, a diversified family with very interesting antioxidant properties have in particular attracted considerable attention in recent years.
INRAE (https://www.inrae.fr/) and the 3BCAR Carnot network (https://3bcar.fr/en/) invites you to update your knowledge about the potential for innovation of these molecules through the case study of ferulic acid, a phenolic acid having a consolidated market position with a growth rate stimulated by its diverse applications of significant growth potential: food and beverages industry, pharmaceutical industry, cosmetic industry…
The workshop will bring together experts from industry and academia with the aim of identifying the technological and scientific priorities to effectively address challenges of cost competitiveness and scale up.
