Developments

The BTL focuses on the production of renewable fuels to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby reduce dependence on imported oil Quebec.

Analysis

The BTL performs various analyzes to determine the content of different compounds and develop analytical methods for the characterization of biomass, the identification of unknown molecules, much more.

Research

The BTL mainly based his research on the upgrading of biomass to fuels and also aims to make processes developed at an industrial level.
