Publication of an electronic knowledge book on the cascading valorisation of biorefinery effluents

The European Zelcor project (2016-2021; https://zelcor.eu/), coordinated by INRAE and AgroParisTech and in which our 3BCAR units: IJPB, FARE and TBI were involved as partner, is aimed at valorize the biorefinery residues of lignins and humins into products of interest and high value for fine chemicals, materials applications and cosmetics.

This project mobilized multiple scientific and technical skills and know-how, reinforced by industrial expertise provided by the project partners.

Given the complexity and diversity of scientific and technical fields relating to the structure of lignins and humins, their extraction process in biorefineries and their valuation, Zelcor has set up a tool for organizing knowledge and for efficient transmission and capitalization within the consortium.

An hypermedia knowledge book has therefore been specifically designed by FARE and IJPB to facilitate the understanding of the strategy for the cascade valuation of biorefineries developed within Zelcor, as well as the visualization of major achievements. It was developed in collaboration with the I2M Bordeaux Unit. It consists of standardized graphic representations of concepts, validated by Zelcor experts, and illustrating all the advances and the most important results obtained within the framework of the project.

The book, the content of which is open access, can be consulted on https://plastic-apps.transform.inrae.fr/zelcor/
