Matthias Desmolles, majored in 2017

"During the third year of my engineer curriculum, driven by the environmental issues, I wanted to specialize in the field of "Biobased Chemistry ". The conversion routes of different renewable raw materials in terms of clean processes helped me to get a different idea of chemistry.
Through these courses, I had the opportunity to explore several fields related to the production of bioproducts and new energies. The variety of lectures has given me a good vision of the solutions and alternatives proposed by Green Chemistry. Each student can thus choose to deepen the axes in which he or she wishes to invest, while preserving the planet ..."
