In partnership with Clermont-Auvergne University, IFPEN has developed a tool for predicting and scaling-up the performance of aerated bioreactors used in bio-based fuel production. This tool, based on numerical fluid mechanics, combines hydrodynamics, rheology, matter transfer and simplified microorganism metabolism.
In the context of an energy environment in full transition, the Catalysis, Biocatalysis and Separation division is redoubling its research efforts on innovation.
