Collaborative Food Engineering Research Laboratory (LRPIA)

The LRPIA develops biotechnological processes for the recovery and transformation of never- or seldom-used plant materials of potential nutritional value.

Contributing to the rise of the circular economy

Increasing the nutritional value of plant materials

The main objective of projects undertaken by the LRPIA at Sup’Biotech is to contribute to the recovery and transformation of plant materials that are currently unused, or scarcely so, and have potential nutritional applications.
This involves the development of biotechnological processes that augment the nutritional value of such plant materials, and it requires the establishment of methods for preserving them from degradation by external agents. It is in accordance with these imperatives that a partnership between the LRPIA and the SEPIA/CEA was forged and has flourished.

Reusing residual plant materials of the food processing industry

Food processing activities and environmental trades generate phenomenal quantities of residues currently unused by the industry. Our ambition is to transform the residual material through fungal fermentation to yield new foodstuffs for animal or human consumption.

We aim to apply the results of laboratory research to the world of industry through contracts with firms in the environmental and food processing fields.

Each year we host several Sup’Biotech students who complete their internships in a scientific setting oriented towards the food processing industry.




About Sup’Biotech

Sup’Biotech is a school specialized in Biotechnology which provide an
innovative course taught over 5 years after the highschool Degree.
The school is close to both the world of scientific research as well as the
corporate world ans has signed partnerships with universities globally.
Graduates gain quick access to senior position both in France and
abroad in such fields as health and pharmaceuticals, food-processing
innovation, cosmetics, bioinformatics or the environment.
The studies, combining academic fundamentals, student projects and
internships are divided into two parts according to European standards:
the preparatory cycle (2 years) and the engineering cycle (3 years).
Sup’Biotech’s Biotechnology engineering program is accredited by
Medicen Paris Région and Industries and Agro-Resources (I.A.R.).
Sup’Biotech also offers an apprenticeship program starting at the
baccalaureate level, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Biotechnology,
which is accessible after highschool Degree.
