|Welcome to Job Tchoumtchoua, our new expert!|
15 Oct 2018
In July, CELABOR welcomed in its team a new expert in extraction and chemical characterisation of natural products: Job TCHOUMTCHOUA.
After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Master of Science in Physiology at the University of Yaounde 1 in Cameroun, Job TCHOUMTCHOUA worked for several years in various research institutions in Greece. Notably, at the Hellenic Research Foundation, at the Hellenic Pasteur Institute, and at the School of Pharmacy of the University of Athens where he obtained a PhD in Pharmacognosy and Natural Products Chemistry in 2016. During his PhD thesis, he acquired advanced skills in extraction, purification, and structural elucidation of compounds from natural origin, as well as the evaluation of their biological properties in vitro

|The EXCornsEED project|
03 Août 2018
CELABOR participates in the European EXCornsEED project on the extraction of functional ingredients from biorefinery residues for a total budget of € 7.2 million.
The EXCornsEED project brings together 13 partners from 8 European countries and has a budget of 4.2 million euros from Bio-Based Industries (BBI-JU) under the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union.
CELABOR participates in this project aimed at developing sustainable technologies for the production of functional ingredients that can be used in the food, chemical and cosmetic industries. These ingredients will be produced from residues from the biorefinery of corn (co-products of bioethanol and biodiesel production). The kick-off meeting of the EXCornsEED ... Read more
|AFTERLIFE WP2 lanched|
06 Juin 2018
Four-year project to develop an integrated solution for the recovery and conversion of relevant fractions from wastewater to make natural additives and bioplastics
As mentioned in a previous news (AFTERLIFE Kick-off meeting), Celabor is one of the 15 partners involved in AFTERLIFE, a European collaborative project framed on the Bio-based Industries call (H2020-BBI-JTI-2016). The AFTERLIFE project proposes a flexible, cost- and resource-efficient process framed in the zero-waste and circular economy approach for the recovery and valorisation of the relevant fractions from wastewater.
The first step of the process consists of a cascade of membrane filtration units for the separation of solids in wastewater ... Read more
|The AOPTI Project|
12 Juin 2018
AOPTI, a two years project to asses Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation process for Micropollutant Elimination in Municipal and Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plants.
The SME Meeting took place on March 1st in CELABOR. More than 10 industrial partners attended this first SME meeting.
The aim of this project is the development of an innovative technology to ensure efficient elimination of micropollutants and toxic effects in waste water by a polishing treatment process.
This physico-chemical treatment step is placed after the conventional biological treatment and can be easily integrated into municipal and industrial WWTPs.
The process is based on oxidation by ozone and an additional photocatalytic subsequent treatment, followed by an adsorption step.
