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 performed at the bio base Europe pilot plant facilities helped us to determine crucial parameters for Bichem products to be directly used in bio ethanol production. It makes our process even more economically attractive and feasible for further cooperation with companies interested in second-generation bio ethanol.
