Our research offers various research and development opportunities for industrialists, from the fundamental scale, passing to test benches and finally to pilot infrastructures.
We cumulates almost 10 years of experience in supporting industry in the field of renewable fuels. Since 2007, the University team has benefited from the support of its founding partners, the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, CRB Innovations, Enerkem and GreenField Global (Platinum Partners). For this palette of prestigious collaborators, the Chair has had the opportunity to interact with different companies over the years including, without limitation, Cascades, Hydro Québec, Hydro Technologies, Glatfelter, L’Oréal and Jungbunzlauer.

With the support of tax credits linked to R&D in addition to the advantages of levers typically of $ 4 / industrial $, it has never been so easy and affordable to do high-level research in this growing sector. in Quebec.
With the financial support of the Government of Canada (via NSERC) as well as in Quebec thanks to the collaboration of CRIBIQ, the Chair has the possibility of supporting the renewable industry at low cost. In addition, in addition to the creation and scaling of new technologies, the Chair is pleased to train high-level students who have cutting-edge expertise in the bioeconomy.
The team takes advantage of one of the best analytical laboratories in Quebec (and in Canada) in the field of biomass analysis, ranging from the analysis of carbon residues to forest or agricultural biomass. Whether for the production of liquid, solid or gaseous fuels, its experience in chemical engineering or in analytical chemistry, the team of the Chair can help you achieve your objectives, improve your processes or even analyze your products.
