Dr. EVON specializes in the valorization of wastes from biomass to produce extracts and to design agromaterials. He is mainly developing studies for using biomass as raw material for:
- Producing bioactive extracts through fractionation processes using “green” solvents and the twin-screw extrusion technology as continuous extraction technique.
- The manufacture of agromaterials by combining single- or twin-screw extrusion technologies with molding processes (e.g. injection-molding or thermopressing).
He is the Manager of the LCA’s Industrial Technological Hall “AGROMAT” dedicated to agromaterial’s (https://www6.toulouse.inra.fr/lca/AGROMAT), which is located in Tarbes (South-West of France).
In the BioSUNmulant project, he is in charge of WP02 (i.e., sunflower biomass fractionation into a water extract and extruded fibres through twin-screw extrusion), and WP07 (i.e., development of bio-based materials with potentials in the building industry from the extruded fibres).
