Successful start for the Post Master degree
Grenoble INP-Pagora has already received a positive assessment of its first Post Master degree Biorefinery: bioenergy, bioproducts & biomaterials which started last September. This one-year degree program is intended for French or foreign students or professionals who wish to specialize in new developments related to biomaterials that are of more and more interest to industries.

Lessons by specialists and visits to industrial and research sites
During the first semester, the students appreciated the diversity and quality of teaching not only by professors and researchers from Grenoble INP-Pagora – drawing notably on the advances in research conducted by the school laboratory (LGP2) – but also by outside specialists.
Indeed, many courses were offered by researchers at IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN) on biofuels, and by researchers at the CEA Grenoble, on thermal processes in biomass conversion.
Several visits to factories and R&D sites allowed them to meet industrial players from the biomaterials sector, to approach the practical aspects of their production and use, and also to better understand the development of research in the field.
Furthermore, they discovered the manufacture of cellulose acetate from cellulose pulp wood at Rhodia Acétol (Isère) and bioplastic packaging at CiccaPack (Isère), as well as eco-design and packaging life cycle analysis in CGL Pack (Haute-Savoie). Research resources mobilized by the IFPEN and CEA were also presented.

During this second semester dedicated to a research project, the students are currently applying this wide range of academic and practical knowledge at Schneider Electric (energy management), Siegwerk (manufacture of inks), Soprema (waterproofing, insulation) and at Wageningen University in Holland.
