Support for a research project aimed at identifying the potential of membrane and separation technologies for the treatment of coffee pulp. Two aspects are addressed: (i) identifying toxic compounds contained in the pulp and ensuring their removal to ensure direct use of the waste and (ii) extracting/separating/concentrating targeted compounds with high added value.
The PhD involved in this project will be in charge of the research activities (understanding and innovation - mainly tasks 3, 4, 5 and 6).
This project is linked to an ANR project which is dedicated to a technical feasibility study of coffee pulp processing (mainly tasks 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7)
