  • Equipment available at different scales: bench-top, 100 kg, ton and multi ton scale
  • First series compounds for application trials
  • Demonstration of technology at large scale
  • Generation of pilot data incl. mass- and energy balances
  • Production of bulk bio-products up to multi ton scale
  • 24/7 operations
  • Quality control
  • Food grade production
  • ISO9001 and FSSC22000
  • Access to larger scale (>100m³)

From research to product, the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant can assist you in different phases of the innovation chain.

The pilot or demonstration phase, during which a lab scale process is translated into an industrial process, can be expensive, risky and time consuming. Scale-up work is a challenge for many companies because of the cost, capital equipment and expertise needed, while there are no guarantees for successful commercialization at that stage. Early collaboration with experienced personnel in a flexible (shared) facility with a wide range of pilot equipment can substantially reduce costs, risks and development time and reinforces the chance to successful market entry.

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant offers a wide range of modular unit operations at lab and pilot scale operated by highly trained and experienced engineers and process operators. As such, a collaborating with BBEPP for your innovative product or process can substantially speed up your innovation and lower the financial risk.
