Purac investigates the participation in a multi-purpose Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF)
Purac is investigating the participation in a multi-purpose Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF) in a consortium of a number of industry partners and universities, including DSM and Delft University of Technology.
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.
The Bioprocess Pilot Facility is planned to be funded by Delft University of Technology, other universities, companies, the European Union, The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation, the Province of South Holland and the Municipalities of Rotterdam, Delft and The Hague. The proposed grants will comply with European Union competition rules and procedures, in particular the rules on State aid. The public authorities involved will follow all necessary procedures.
