Lactic acid and biosurfactants sourced from sustainable agricultural and industrial (food) WASTE feedstocks as novel FUNCtional ingredients for consumer products. The WASTE2FUNC project aims to resolve supply chain hurdles towards the efficient conversion of food (crop) waste into two types of biobased functional molecules for use in home- and personal care applications: lactic acid and microbial biosurfactants.
Glaukos a four-year European project coordinated by the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant, will develop biodegradable and biorecyclable textile fibres and coatings to be used in fishing gear and clothing.
Glaukos will develop innovative textile fibres and textile coatings that reconcile an excellent environmental performance with adequate technical characteristics.
SMARTBOX will develop an advanced computational engineering platform specifically for oxidative enzymes. Relying on this platform, SMARTBOX will develop the one-enzyme conversion of HMF into FDCA and intermediates, and the one-enzyme conversion of lignin monomers into a potential biobased building block for polycarbonates and vanillin.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) bouwt infrastructuur voor de ondersteuning van de technologietransfer tussen bedrijven en BBEPP.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) is building infrastructure to support the technology transfer between companies and BBEPP.
Opbouw van nieuwe demonstratie apparatuur – Building new demonstration equipment
Improving policies in support of shared pilot facilities to increase their impact on the Key Enabling Technology Industrial Biotech and the European Bioeconomy SmartPilots EVENTS We invite all stakeholders (managing authorities, intermediate bodies, regional funding authorities and applicants, funding beneficiaries, innovation organisations, cluster organisation, users of SPF…) with an interest in shared pilot facilities (SPF) and […]
The BioBase4SME project intends to help Start-ups and SME to overcome technological and non-technological barriers to bring their innovation to market.
Pilots4U aims to setup one very visible, easy accessible network of open access pilot and multipurpose demo-infrastructures for the European bio-economy.
IB2Market aims to bring industrial biotechnology from the research lab to the market and to solve the bottle-necks in industrialization. The project covers process development, scale up, market exploration and the drafting of a valorization plan to support a successful market introduction.
The aim of BIOKATALYSE is to acquaint traditional chemical industry with the Key Enabling Technology Biocatalysis. Biocatalysis is a technology that uses enzymes instead of chemical catalysts to catalyse or speed up chemical processes. The target group is the Flemish chemical industry that is mainly making use of conventional chemical conversion techniques.
The project aims to accelerate the growth of the biobased economy, EU and local partners joined forces by providing financial, technological, training, networking and political support to enterprises in North West Europe (NWE) innovating in biobased products and processes.
Europe, Flanders and the Province of East-Flanders invest €1,27 million in new equipment for Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. These funds were used to purchase and install three new bioreactors with auxiliary equipment and software: two with a volume of 1.500L and one with a volume of 15.000L. This investment enables BBEPP to provide services to even more companies and it will have a larger capacity for producing industrially relevant quantities of innovative biobased products. This is an important tool for companies that wish to test the production of larger batches to prepare market introduction before investing in a full scale production line. Companies collaborating with BBEPP for process validation and scale-up can substantially reduce costs, risks and development time and will reinforce the chance to successful market entry.
The ChitoBioEngineering project aims at establishing biotechnological ways of producing fully defined, partially acetylated chitosan oligomers. This will be achieved through genetic, metabolic, and enzyme engineering.
