The FCBA Technological Institute supports companies in the wood and furniture sector by accompanying their development and helping them to integrate innovations that enable them to adapt to changing needs, markets and regulations. The FCBA is participating in the BioImpulse project through its InTechFibres cluster, which develops wood-based innovations, and its Wood Laboratory cluster, which validates the tests and measurements of companies’ products and processes and coordinates communication. 

In line with its proactive policy in favour of sustainable development and environmental protection, the Toulouse INSA has joined the BioImpulse project. Through one of its technology transfer structures, the CRITT Bio-Industries, it is involved in the integration of industrial biotechnologies for the development of a process to replace petro-sourced compounds. 

The mission of Lesaffre’s Leaf business unit is to innovate in the field of green chemistry by developing new yeasts capable of reducing the industry’s dependence on fossil fuels. The BioImpulse project reflects Lesaffre’s commitment to accelerating this transition. 

The BioImpulse project, spearheaded by ResiCare, a Michelin Group brand, reflects Michelin’s commitment to promoting sustainable materials in its products and beyond. BioImpulse also marks Michelin’s arrival  in the biotech sector , providing  sustainable solutions for industry, and illustrates its  strategy of leveraging its know-how in high-tech materials.  

INRAE, France’s National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and Environment, is committed to promoting ecodesign to develop sustainable resources in the fields of green chemistry and materials chemistry. It is participating in the BioImpulse project via its TWB and TBI units. An accelerator of industrial biotechnologies, TWB acts as an interface between public laboratories (TBI, LGC). 

BioImpulse is a project supported by ADEME, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, as part of its Investments for the Future programme.
