This Bioprocess Pilot Facility is planned to be built in Delft, The
Netherlands and aimed at scale-up research and education for
next generation bioprocesses. In this facility process development
research can be facilitated in the field of biomass pre-processing,
biomass pre-treatment, fermentation and down stream processing.
