Harnessing pYrolysis & Biotechnology to Recycle mIxed plastic waste to Dicarboxylic acids

Development of a hybrid process consisting of pyrolysis, biological funnelling, fermentation, and innovative product recovery to convert mixed plastic waste into high-value building blocks. 

ACTIVITIES of the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant

BBEPP is responsible for the development of: 

  • an advanced biphasic fermentation technology to produce dicarboxylic acids from MPW-derived olefin feedstocks.
  • innovative in situ product recovery strategies to boost productivity and allow maximal resource recycling. 



This Project fits within the Moonshot program and has received financial support of the Flemish Government and Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship (VLAIO), project nr. HBC.2023.0550.
