Challenges of Nicolas
With more than 50 years of experience taking new technologies from the lab to industry, CEA Tech is poised to drive and coordinate the French government’s innovation-led industrial regeneration policy.
The challenge includes a European Benchmark of such models, a local market analysis to identify and assess biobased CO2 users, the design of models of interests to be studied, and CO2 impacts assessment for such models compared to a reference model of conventional CO2 logistics.
The European insect industry is on the rise and France is a key player in its development. Agronutris has chosen to breed the black soldier fly, a competitive and promising insect that can valorize a wide range of agro-industrial by-products while having a quite short growth cycle. The challenge will consist in improving its environmental impact.
