Chemical Engineering Students claim first prize
at the order of engineers!

Bernard Merhe and Olivia Boutros claimed first prize for their graduating final project in chemical engineering at the 8th annual project exhibition organized by the order of engineers in north Lebanon. Their research focused on the determination of the physical and chemical properties of the oak and forest trees residues as part of the SABioP project.

SABioP project is funded by the European Union (EU) and implemented by The Institute of the Environment at the University of Balamand in partnership with Koura Municipalities Union and El Koura Development Council.

This project is part of the EU Regional SUDEP Program which encompasses 12 projects in 6 countries around the Mediterranean, and implemented by the Institute of the Environment at the University of Balamand. This project aims at implementing a sustainable activity for biofuel production, i.e. biomass briquettes production from pruning residues of olive groves and public forests, in order to support the Koura Municipalities Union (KMU) in facing challenges related to energy sustainability”.

Our congratulations to them! ​​
