Uncovering the mechanisms and tools shaped by Nature to improve the use of renewable carbon and to contribute to sustainable development: this is the ambition of FARE laboratory.

Our mission, inside the network of our INRA and URCA partner labs, is focused on three key points of the biological / technological transformation of lignocellulosic plant biomass, for non-food usages:

- follow the degradation of lignocellulose (culture residues, litters) by soil micro-organisms in the field, in order to maintain fertility and to favor ecosystem services necessary for a sustainable agriculture (input management, carbon and nitrogen cycles);

- fractionation of lignocellulose by enzymatic or microbial biotechnological processes, to produce chemicals of interest for chemistry and energy, while respecting the green chemistry concepts (2G bioethanol, sugar-based surfactant,…);

- using agro-sourced fibres and polymers, to design innovative nanostructured materials with new optical properties (protective films and coatings), or composite materials with high technical and environmental performances (light, recyclable, biodegradable,…).
