DemoProBio
  • 1G sugar, AO-NIB, Aceton, Acetonitrile, Bulk chemicals, Butanol, Ethanol, Fermentation, Finished projects, Fuels, In situ product recovery, Product recovery & purification, Regional-flanders, Scale-up (TRL 4-6), Solvents, VLAIO/AO, WP leader

Industrial biotechnology plays a crucial role in the development of sustainable and cost effective production processes for biobased chemicals. These processes typically consist of two distinct unit operations: fermentation, followed by purification of the compound of interest from the fermentation broth. Product recovery and purification (also called downstream processing or DSP) are important cost factors, responsible for up to 80% of the total production cost. Reducing DSP cost is therefore a key success factor to improve the overall economics of biobased processes.
