A one-stop-shop for the conversion of renewable feedstocks into refined bioproducts.

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant focuses on the 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 and operate according to the ONE-STOP-SHOP principle.

What is a one-stop-shop?

All technologies necessary to go from feedstock to end product under one roof, as perfectly illustrated in this video: Conversion of bark into 2,3 butanediol, performed within the REHAP-Project.

What technologies do we offer?

The Feedstock

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 for more information.

Biomass Pretreatment

We offer mechanical, thermal, physicochemical and enzymatic pretreatment of biomass feedstocks.
