The Unit of Biological and Industrial Chemistry (CBI) at Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech in Gembloux (University of Liège), is an academic research group focusing on adding value to plant biomass. Our know-how extends from chemistry to process development. Our main expertise relates to:
- the caracterisation of biopolymers, primarily polysaccharides (cellulose, hemicelluloses, pectins, oligosaccharides...) and lignin.
- the splitting of lignocellulosic feedstocks into pure fractions.
