The US Aims to Close its Fermentation Capacity Gap

“The US is a leader in engineering microbes to produce chemicals, but government, nonprofit, and industry leaders warn that the country is falling behind when it comes to building the infrastructure needed to commercialize those products.

Biomanufacturing companies are trying to increase fermentation capacity across the US at all levels of production, from flexible pilot plants to large-scale contract manufacturing operations.”

ABPDU is cited in this article in Chemical & Engineering News as one of the few publicly-funded scale-up facilities in the country.
