” From Doctorate to Employment “

The Université de Lyon proposes in the section “Doctorat”, the setting up of a new system initiated by the Department of Doctoral Studies at the University of Lyon, with the expertise of OPE (Objective for Employment), ” From Doctorate to Employment “.

It is presented in the form of a six-month program led by experts, for the support of doctors tailored to the search for a permanent job outside the academic sector. This course is based on a collective dynamic led by professional trainers, and associated with a personalized accompaniment adapted to their profile.

The program of the device, with the contacts to be taken, is


and a Presentation Note ED-OPE 07-2017-1

Journées du LAGEP : June 22nd and 23rd, 2017

These scientific days are an unmissible annual meeting for the laboratory. They are an excellent opportunity for the PhD students to present their angoing research (oral presentations and poster sessions) to the laboratory staff and partners. They will take place on June 22nd and 23rd, 2017 at Petit-Amphi of CPE Lyon. Event not to be missed !

Seminar: New Precipitation Process for Alumina Synthesis

Robin Lafficher defended his thesis on 01/12 at IFP Solaize. He will do a rehearsal at the LAGEP on Tuesday, November 22 at 4 pm, room Jacques Bordet, for those who can not go to IFP, or who wish to exchange on the subject.
Subjects : New precipitation process for alumina synthesis (key words: micromixing, precipitation, meteriau for catalysis)
Supervisors : Didier COLSON, François Puel

Seminar: Modeling enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass by population balance

Noureddine Lebaz will present his works on Tuesday, November 15 at 4 pm, Salle Jacques Bordet

Title : Modeling enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass by population balance
& Simulation and Analysis of Particle Trajectories in a Reactor: Applications to Water Treatment and Seaweed Culture

Summary :

I) The enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulose is the reaction of decomposition of the biomass via a biocatalyst: the enzymes. In the case of cellulose, its destruction produces fermentable glucose monomers in bioethnol (called second generation). The stage of decomposition is limiting hence the interest of reliable modeling. In this work, population balance formalism is used to better manage heterogeneities of the substrate, in particular its distribution of sizes. Numerical and experimental aspects will be discussed.

II) The objective of the work is to simulate the hydrodynamics and the trajectories of particles in an agitated / non-agitated photocatalytic reactor using the tools of the numerical fluid mechanics (CFD). In this case, the distribution of light must be taken into account when the fluid (and the dispersed phase: micropollutants, microalgae …) does not see the same field of light according to its spatial position. Eulerian (continuous) and Lagrangian (discontinuous) approaches will be discussed in order to predict the effectiveness of this type of reactor.

Titre :

Modélisation de l’hydrolyse enzymatique de la biomasse lignocellulosique par bilan de population &
Simulation et analyse des trajectoires de particules dans un réacteur: applications au traitement de l’eau et à la culture des algues

Résumé :

I) L’hydrolyse enzymatique de la lignocellulose est la réaction de décomposition de la biomasse via un biocatalyseur : les enzymes. Dans le cas de la cellulose, sa destruction produit des monomères de glucose fermentescibles en bioétahnol (dit de seconde génération). L’étape de la décomposition est limitante d’où l’intérêt d’une modélisation fiable. Dans ce travail, le formalisme de bilan de population est utilisé afin de gérer au mieux les hétérogénéités du substrat, en particulier sa distribution de tailles. Des aspects numériques et expérimentaux seront discutés.
II) L’objectif du travail est la simulation à l’aide des outils de la mécanique des fluides numérique (CFD) de l’hydrodynamique et des trajectoires de particules au sein d’un réacteur photocatalytique agité/non agité. Dans ce cas, la distribution de la lumière est à prendre en compte dès lors que le fluide (et la phase dispersée: micropolluants, microalgues …) ne voit pas le même champ de lumière selon sa position spatiale. Des approches Euleriennes (continues) et Lagrangiennes (discontinues) seront discutées dans le but de prédire l’efficacité de ce type de réacteurs.
