Technologies

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant focuses on conversion of many kinds of biomass into biochemicals, biomaterials, biofuels and other bioproducts. We have expertise covering the whole value chain from Biomass to Refined Product. 

Biomass

We can handle all kinds of Biomass, depending on the needs of the client. Some examples: Corn stover, paper pulp, oils and fats, husks, bran, straw, agro Industrial by-products, bagasse, beet pulp, seed press cakes, algae, non-food crops, defined media: glucose, sucrose, etc. … and many more. Contact our business development team to find out more.

Biomass Pretreatment

We offer mechanical, thermal, physicochemical and enzymatic pretreatment of biomass feedstocks.
For more information, check out our Biomass Pretreatment Webpage and Folder.

Analytical Capabilities

Process follow-up of the most important process parameters and quantification of compounds of interest with a wide range of already available standard analytical methods reducing cost and efforts. For more information check out our Analytical Capabilities Webpage and Folder.

Biocatalysis

We offer scale-up and demonstration of biocatalytic processes, using purified enzyme and whole-cell biocatalysts as well as bioconversion processes. For more information, check out our Biocatalysis Webpage and Folder.

(Gas)Fermentation

We offer scale-up and demonstration of fermentation processes (batch, fed-batch and continuous - with or without cell recycle). We have experience with bacterial, yeast and fungal systems. For more information, check our Fermentation Webpage and Folder.

Green Chemistry

We offer ATEX compliant installations and expertise for different types of chemical processes (chemical synthesis and chemical conversion reactions, chemical hydrolysis, extractions, flocculation). For more information, check our Green Chemistry Webpage and Folder.

Product Recovery and Purification

We offer expertise in development, scale-up and demonstration of product recovery and purification processes using a broad range of processing equipment for aqueous and solvent based applications. For more information, check our Product Recovery and Purification Webpage and Folder.

Refined Product

Depending on the type of product different kinds of end products are aimed for. Some examples: Specialty carbohydrates, Industrial enzymes, fine chemicals, solvents, polymers, flavours and fragrances, protein concentrates, surfactants, nutraceuticals, fuels … and many more.
