Meet Dr Lionel MUNIGLIA from Biolie - France on our Master Session #4 (the last episode of the series) on 29 Octobrer

Lionel MUNIGLIA completed his PhD thesis on biotechnological and food processes in 2001 and was recruited as a lecturer at the French National Superior School of Agronomy and Food Industries (ENSAIA). Since then, his research has focused on clean and environmentally friendly processes based on biocatalysis for the extraction and synthesis of biomolecules. Within this context, he patented a green process of enzymatic biorefinery of plants leading to value agricultural co-products in a circular economy approach. Due to the many applications envisaged in 2012 he created the company "BIOLIE, l'extraction au sens propre" to expand the world patent on an industrial scale and to offer a complete valorisation of vegetable raw materials. Oils, proteins, sugars, polyphenols can therefore be produced in a healthy and sustainable way to design active ingredients and natural dyes currently on the cosmetic and nutraceutical markets. Today, Lionel MUNIGLIA provides the scientific management of BIOLIE and continues his research work for the Biomolecules Engineering Laboratory (LIBio) at Lorraine University on enzyme catalysis and the development of green sustainable processes.


Topic Title
Enzymatic biomass biorefinery: mimicking nature to better exploit plant potential

Nature has always been a forerunner in biorefinery and the circular economy. It offers various biological mechanisms, based in particular on reactions catalysed by enzymes, which allow each living being to find its place, to feed itself, to develop and to disappear in order to give way to a new generation. Thus, each living being that disappears is split into multiple molecules that feed a whole ecosystem. Nothing is wasted; each released element sustains a whole food chain. This is the principle of the circular economy and plant biorefinery on which BIOLIE's activity is based. Thanks to its knowledge of enzymes and their use, BIOLIE transforms raw plant materials of all kinds to extract the active molecules for humans in a "zero waste" concept and with processes that respect the environment. Through examples of applications, the principle of BIOLIE's patented biorefinery technology will be presented.

Each Master Session will take up to 2 hours from 10 AM till noon and will be themed according to the following specific subjects:
Session #1New (bio)resources – 10 September 2020
Session #2New (bio)products – 24 September 2020
Session #3: New technologies > industrial micro bio network ­– 8 October 2020
Session #4: New technologies > enzymatic and extraction technologies – 29 October 2020
