Description of our solutions
The PolyNat Carnot Institute is devoted to the design of new bio-based functional and innovative systems and materials. Our strategy is built around four scientific and technological challenges: extraction/valorisation and functionalisation of bio-based building blocks, controlled self-assembly and nano-organisation, manufacturing and forming processes. Our research combines experimental and modelling/simulation approaches from the proof of concept to the production at a pilot scale.
