Entreprise :

Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is an institution dedicated to research and innovation in Africa and aims to position itself among world-renowned universities in its fields The University is engaged in economic and human development and puts research and innovation at the forefront of African development. A mechanism that enables it to consolidate Morocco’s frontline position in these fields, in a unique partnership-based approach and boosting skills training relevant for the future of Africa. Located in the municipality of Benguerir, in the very heart of the Green City, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University aspires to leave its mark nationally, continentally, and globally.

Poste :

This PhD study aims to develop a hydrothermal process for algae biomass, which can effectively break down complex molecules into smaller components with plastic-like behavior. The study focuses on implementing an easily applicable chemical modification step to fine-tune the processability of these components. Additionally, the fractionated and chemically modified components, with mainly biostimulant effect will be reassembled along with P-fertilizers in cascading way into advanced fertilizing systems through extrusion processing. The used-up biomass will be further proceeded additional thermal treatments to create added-value products. The proposed approach adopts a zero-waste strategy, ensuring the maximum utilization of the algae biomass and promoting sustainability.


Work duties:

To develop this highly challenging project, we are looking for a highly motivated student able to design, plan and execute experimental work, to conduct literature search, actively participate and present results in group meetings, seminars and conferences, taking a lead role in writing articles, initiate close collaboration with other faculty members, assist bachelor and other students in their activities.
