Environmental solutions for the treatment and the valorization of emissions linked with human activities

  • 3500m² of laboratories and technological halls
  • Cutting-edge analytical and experimental equipment
  • A multidisciplinary staff of experts from industry and academia and public research

Based on the experience and know-how of LBE, a major player in research, development and transfer in the fields of depollution, bioenergy and the development of bio-resources for 30 years. BIO2E platform encompasses the collaborative research activities of the LBE and the technology transfer and services activities of its business unit ITE (INRA Transfert Environnement), created in 2007.

Fonctionnement de la plateforme BIO2E

ITE was the first business unit launched by an INRA laboratory based on in-house know-how for satisfying demand on short term studies by socio-economic stakeholders.


  1. To provide to our partners (academic, industrial or social actors) technical support and expertise to answer in a pertinent and rapid manner demands in the area of environmental biotechnology.
  2. To guarantee the interface for the transfer of LBE’s research results into valuable applications, by the identification and overcome of gaps and barriers in the LBE’s research to innovation pathway

Offer of services
