PhD. Tamara Llano Astuy

Received the M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering in 2009, the post degree in Process and Chemical Engineering “Sustainable Production and Consumption” in 2010, and the B.S. degree in 2011 from the University of Cantabria. She has worked as a researcher doing the ph.D. in the GER group of the Chemistry and Process & Resource Engineering Department in collaboration with Sniace factory. Her research interest are in the areas of sulphite pulping chemistry and technology; lignocellulosic biomass characterization, hydrolysis, fractionation and detoxification; waste and industrial effluents conversion in biofuels, specifically second generation bioethanol and value-added chemical byproducts for valorization purposes.She obtained her PhD with international mention in 2016 titled “Developments in a sulphite pulping process for the valorisation of its carbohydrate resources within the biorefinery concept”

Recibió el título de Ingeniería Química en 2009, el título de Máster en Ingeniería Química y de Procesos “Producción y Consumo Sostenible”en 2010, y el título de Ingeniero Técnico Industrial en 2011 por la Universidad de Cantabria. Ha trabajado como investigadora y doctoranda en el grupo GER del Departamento de Quimica e Ingeniería de Procesos y Recursos (QuIPRe) en colaboración con Sniace. Sus intereses en investigación se centran en las áreas de tecnología y química del proceso de pasteado al sulfito; caracterización, hidrólisis, fraccionamiento y detoxificación de biomasa lignocelulósica; conversión de residuos y efluentes industriales a biocombustibles, especialmente bioetanol de segunda generación y subproductos químicos de valor añadido con motivo de su valorización. Obtuvo el título de Doctor por la Universidad de Cantabria, con mención internacional en 2016 con la tesis titulada “Developments in a sulphite pulping process for the valorisation of its carbohydrate resources within the biorefinery concept”

FEASIBILITY STUDY OF SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDE EXTRACTION AND CHARACTERIZATION FROM MARINE MACROALGAE BIOMASS: POLIEXTRALGA

On October 1st, 2018, the Project entitled “Feasibility of Sulfated Polysaccharide Extraction and Characterization from marine macroalgae: POLIEXTRALGA“ kicked off. The project, commissioned by Spanish biotech company INVESTALGA AHTI S.L. will have a duration of 8 months and will be developed by the GER group, with Dra. Tamara Llano Astuy as Researcher in charge. The main goal of this research project is to study the feasibility of sulfated polysaccharide extraction from marine macroalgae biomass analyzing parameters affecting the auto hydrolysis such as residence time or temperature, among others. Sulfated polysaccharide extracts will be characterized in terms of monosaccharides, uronic acids, molecular weight distribution, total sulfates and total ashes.  

Added value protein from Animal by-products not intended for human consumption

On November 07, 2017, the Project entitled "Analysis and Protein Hydrolysis of Fish Bones for Human Food (HIDPROTEC)" came into force. This project, signed with HADELCA S.L. Company under the I+C=+C (SODERCAN/FEDER) Regional Program, will be developed during 7.5 months by the GER Group, with Dra. Tamara Llano Astuy as Responsible Researcher.

A primary objective of the HDPROTEC project is the optimization of the protein enzymatic hydrolysis production of value added products (such as proteins, oil, amino acids, minerals, enzymes, bioactive peptides, collagen and gelatine) from Animal by-products (ABPs) which are not intended for human consumption. Characterization of the enzymatic hydrolysates by Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) technique will be carried out in the R&D laboratories of the GER group as a fundamental task of the project.
