Bio Base NextGen

In brief: Investment in eight pressurized stainless steel fermenters of 30 L each
RRF Project Bio Base NextGen, Contract Nr. VV021/01 with support from:

The Bio Base NextGen Fermentation Platform enables accelerated scale-up of innovative fermentation processes from lab scale to a relevant demonstration and production scale. The investment consists of eight stainless steel fermenters of 30 L each. Unlike BBEPP’s current range of lab fermenters, these fermenters can be pressurized, and can therefore closely approximate the properties of larger scale pilot fermenters. To enable automation and data analysis and to bridge the gap to an ‘industrial biotechnology 4.0’, the NextGen fermenters will be equipped with advanced sensors for online measurements of certain process parameters. In addition to making the economy more sustainable, “digital transformation” is also a spearhead of the Relance Plan “Vlaamse Veerkracht” (EU Recovery and Resilience Facility, RRF).
