Bioindustrial Technologies

CÉPROCQ ‘s expertise allows you to offer the methods best suited to your requests for extraction of high value-added compounds:

  • Development of every step of a pilot-scale extraction process, from preparation of the raw material to forming and characterization of the extract;
  • Comparative studies of different pilot-scale extraction methods (example: comparison of an oil from marine biomass extracted by Soxhlet and by supercritical fluids);
  • Valorization of extraction residues to develop processes of conversion and transformation to zero residue (example: extraction of bioactive molecules from a residue resulting from extraction of an algal oil.)

Conferences

Since 2012, CÉPROCQ has had an NSERC Industrial Research Chair for Colleges in Agroforestry Extraction, directed by Yacine Boumghar, Director of CÉPROCQ. This Chair is a centre of convergence of knowledge of agroforestry extraction and an incubator of technological solutions to meet the needs of the community and industrial players.

In relation to the Chair, CÉPROCQ researchers are called on to make presentations and moderate many conferences.
