Pectcof B.V. (The Netherlands) is a start-up company that developed the technology to transform coffee pulp biomass into valuable compounds. To speed up this innovation from the laboratory to an industrial process, we were introduced to Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. Here we did two production runs under the support of innovation vouchers from Bio Base North West Europe. These vouchers were used to first determine the feasibility of our technology, and secondly, for the first production run. The added value of Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant is in the very knowledgeable personnel, the enormous amount of processing equipment available, and the speed of working together. All in all, we think Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant gave a strong boost to our innovation technology to a size that really matters for the industry.
