Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF, Delft, the Netherlands)
BPF is an open access facility where companies can scale up new sustainable production processes by converting biomass / biobased residues into useful chemicals or fuels for Food, Chemical Industry and Pharma.
BPF has a dedicated pilot plant design to enable the transition from laboratory to industrial scale. With 35 people, mainly experienced process operators and process technologists, we help companies to (im)prove their process.
BPF allows users to construct complex operations by linking the separate process modules: Pretreatment, Hydrolysis, Fermentation and/or Downstream Processing.
Scaling up of lab processes can be proven on pilot scale with excellent prediction of processing on industrial scale. Examples of business partners are Verdezyne, DSM, Corbion, Evonik and many more. We also do production of kg-quantities for pre-marketing, application tests and/or preclinical trials.
