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. BPF allows users to construct complex operations by linking the separate process modules: Pretreatment, Hydrolysis, Fermentation and/or Downstream Processing.
BPF is partner in BBI JU projects ‘AgriMax’ (Agri and food waste valorisation co-ops based on flexible multi-feedstocks biorefinery processing technologies for new high added value applications) and ‘BIOFOREVER’ (BIO-based products from FORestry via Economically Viable European Routes).
