With expertise in biotechnology, green chemistry, downstream processing and analytical chemistry, our research unit is dedicated to the sustainable production of high value-added bio-based chemicals such as building blocks, biopolymers, functional additives for food/feed, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics or biocontrol.

Located in the CEBB (European Center of Biotechnology and Bioeconomy, co-funded by the ERDF, the Grand Est Region , the Marne department and Urban Community of Grand Reims) at the heart of the Pomacle-Bazancourt biorefinery, the URD ABI is interested in the valorization of biomass through an approach combining biotechnologies, green chemistry and process engineering.

Thanks to its expertise in chemistry, polymers/materials, microbiology/biochemistry/molecular biology, chemical engineering and separation process engineering as well as in analytical chemistry, the URD ABI is able to carry out multi- and transdisciplinary fundamental and applied research projects with the ambition of developing and optimizing sustainable industrial processes and high value-added products from agro-resources and industrial by-products.
