The Bioprocess Pilot Facility has been founded based on an emerging economy concerning both a bio-based society and environment.
In the Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF) companies and knowledge institutions can develop novel, sustainable and environmentally friendly production processes based on biological materials (called 'biomass'). For example, processes to convert agricultural waste into biofuels. The BPF is especially designed to enable the step-up from laboratory scale to industrial scale. Users can couple separate modules to investigate and develop their own processes. Another important aspect of the facility is to provide training and education.
Situated at the Biotech Campus Delft, the Netherlands, the Bioprocess Pilot Facility B.V. (BPF) is a unique open access facility where companies and knowledge institutions can develop new sustainable production processes.
These processes serve many purposes, such as converting bio-based residues into useful chemicals or fuels. The facility has been specifically designed to enable the transition from laboratory to industrial scale.
