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 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).
