Agropolymer Engineering and Emerging Technologies (IATE)

UMR IATE is developing a multidisciplinary scientific approach to the characterization, processing and valorization of renewable agro-resources from the agricultural, forestry and agri-food sectors.

The UMR is particularly interested in the structure and functionalities of biopolymers and biomolecules.

Its multidisciplinary expertise lies at the interface between :

  • biochemistry ;
  • physico-chemistry ;
  • process engineering ;
  • biotechnology ;
  • chemistry ;
  • physics ;
  • numerical and computational modeling.

Our research focuses on the complexity of agro-resources, using high-performance analytical methods and the design of original technological itineraries for processing in the fields of agri-food, bio-based materials, biocatalysis and bioenergies.
