We apply the biorefinery approach by combining the necessary technologies with conversion steps to produce and then recover intermediates and final products. Processes are typically developed and optimized individually, and then combined into a process chain with crossover regimens. We often use byproducts or waste materials to produce high value products or chemicals needed for other processes. The focus is on process integration, intensification and economics, and achieving high yield.
Our facility has biomass pretreatment and enzymatic saccharification reactors up to the 210 liter scale, and fermenters up to the 300 liter scale. All our reactors are equipped with data logging and process control instrumentation. For every stage of biofuel and bioproduct production processes, we provide data to define parameters for scaling from lab to production. We provide various analyses to assess the commercial feasibility of your technology.
