Dr. Wilian Marcondes is a postdoctoral fellow at ABPDU, where he is part of the fermentation group. His main area of focus is studying the variability in biomass and processes used in fermentation, with the goal of producing high-value products such as aviation fuels.
With a background in biochemical engineering and expertise in engineering, project management, and research and development, Dr. Marcondes has extensive experience in the field of biomass processing, including scaling up processes, anaerobic and aerobic fermentation, and statistical data analysis.
He holds a degree in Biochemical Engineering from the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, where he also completed his master’s degree in Biomass Conversion. His master’s thesis focused on the extraction of high-value products from sugarcane bagasse within a biorefinery concept, with a specific emphasis on xylooligosaccharides. During his Ph.D., he studied the prebiotic potential of XOS under different conditions, including isolated bifidobacterias and human fecal fermentation experiments, which were conducted at Orebro University in Sweden and concluded at the University of Sao Paulo.
