CONFERENCES

Pascal XANTHOPOULOS is currently a part-time lecturer on wood chemistry at the School of Wood Science and Timber Engineering ENSTIB (University of Lorraine), the only national and university engineering school specialized in wood in France. The lectures are supported by concrete case studies showing promising wood bio-refinery initiatives despite the challenges to overcome.
