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 by converting bio-based residues into useful chemicals or fuels and production processes for Food and Pharma.
The facility has been specifically designed to enable the transition from laboratory to industrial scale. The facility has a modular setup: users can couple separate modules to investigate and develop their own processes. BPF allows users to construct complex operations by linking the separate process modules: Pretreatment, Hydrolysis, Fermentation and/or Downstream Processing.
Because of its high quality standards, the BPF can also be used to produce kg- quantities of material for pre-marketing and application tests at customers and/or preclinical trials (for Food or Pharma applications). The BPF has a long standing historical track record in bioprocess piloting with an experienced crew.
Another important aspect of the facility is to provide training and education.
