A wide range of state-of-the-art industrial equipment, and the experienced and flexible team of over 40 employees, serve customers from around the world in the field of biomass pretreatment, fermentation, downstream purification, bio-catalysis and explosion proof green chemistry.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant is fully independent and self-sustaining, and has successfully scaled-up more than 130 bio-processes for more than 70 companies in the last three years. Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant has extensive expertise in the production of for example industrial enzymes, speciality carbohydrates, bio-surfactants, organic acids, monomers, solvents, flavors and fragrances, biopolymers, oleo-chemicals and fuels,… and this from various biomass feed stocks. Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant is a European frontrunner in industrial biotechnology, and was therefore selected in 2014 by the European Commission as a demonstrator multi-KET pilot line.
We are open to companies (small, intermediate and large) and research institutes from around the world and from different sectors to bring their bio-based innovations from the lab to the market.
