Falcon

January 2017 - December 2020

Falcon: Fuel And chemicals from Lignin through enzymatic and chemical CONversion.
FALCON aims to convert this lignin-rich industrial waste of 2G biofuel plants to higher value products, in particular shipping fuels, fuel additives and chemical building blocks. This would be the next consecutive step in turning waste to products, thus minimizing waste and simultaneously providing new alternatives for fossil resource based processes.

CarboSurf

August 2015 - July 2018

The CARBOSURF project aims to develop new biobased processes as well as products and solves bottlenecks in the fermentative production of biobased biosurfactants and specialty carbohydrates. Specifically, it targets different glycolipid biosurfactants with a wide range of application fields and specialty carbohydrates, i.e. complex Human Milk Oligosaccharides that find applications as neutraceutical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic ingredients. The project is coordinated by Prof. Soetaert from Ghent University (Belgium).

Testimonial by BiCHEM Technology (The Netherlands)

Posted on Posted in Testimonials

Bichem technology is a young but very ambitious company, active in process development for biomass conversion. Our contact with the bio base Europe pilot plant with experience in scale-up of bio-based processes helped us to accelerate our research. This cooperation was possible thanks to financial support available within the Bio Base Northwest Europe project. Experiments […]

2G BIOPIC

March 2015 - April 2018

2G BIOPIC proposes a new approach: bioethanol production from lignocellulosic biomass. This technology is based on a highly effective clean deconstruction of lignocellulosic biomass, an advanced organosolv technology, for which several patents have been submitted in the past decade by CIMV. An original and efficient biomass refining technology allows optimal extraction of the three main biomass components and downstream biotechnological transformation.

Visions

September 2011 - December 2015

The VISIONS project aims to identify the main organic waste streams and by-products in Flanders with the ambition to use these products in new value chains.
The project, a CINBIOS* initiative, is financially supported by the Flemish Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT). It is co-funded by a large consortium of companies interested in either valorising their waste stream or in finding alternative feedstocks for biobased processes. This consortium is monitoring and steering the project’s progress.

Ghent Syngas Cluster

March 2012 - December 2014

Project Scope The Ghent Syngas Cluster project aimed at developing and demonstrating new innovative technology to convert syngas, a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen gas, into green chemicals, sustainable fuels and green electricity. To achieve this, a study was performed to check the technical and economic feasibility to construct a demonstration unit at the Bio […]
