INV 15: Pilot Reactor (ATEX, 100L)

A mid-size pilot reactor (100L) will be assembled at Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. It will enable chemical reactions, batch evaporations, and crystalisations at a scale which was not yet available at Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. more

INV 14: Filtration Equipment

The Bio Base NWE partnerships invested in a Rotary Drum Filter, a Basket Filter and a Candle Filter. more

INV 13: Pilot extraction column with reciprocal stack. (6-15 kg/h)

Several SMEs asked for extraction capabilities, so the Bio Base NWE partnership decided to invest. The equipment currently is operational has arrived at BBEPP. more

INV 12: Pilot spray dryer (5-10 kg/h)

The Bio Base NWE partnership decided to invest in a pilot spray dryer. The equipment is aimed at spray drying at a relatively small scale. This will allow to test the process feasibility quickly, efficient and in a cost-effective manner. The possibility to make powders give the customer a stable product for example for application or blending trials, without the need for a third party. more

INV 11: Lyophilizer (10-15kg water)

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant will have a lyophilization operational by December 2014. more

INV 10: High Shear Colloid Mills

The Bio Base NWE partnership decided to invest in two high shear colloid mills, used to physically pre-treat biomass to 10ths of microns scale. The product is “wet” milled, with the adjustable stator/rotor space defining the final particle sizes of the suspensions. more

INV 9: Pin Mill or Hammer Mill

As SMEs pointed out this lacking service, the Bio Base NWE partnership invests in a Cutting Mill and a Pin Disk Mill. They are used to reduce particle size, break up, and/or cut agglomerates of dry material such as crystals. more

INV 8: Shaker Chambers (3 pieces)

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant installed extra Shaker Chambers capacity. more

INV 7: Spectrophotometer

The Bio Base NWE partnership invests in a Spectrophotometer. It has been operational since March 2014. Spectrophotometers are used to follow a range of process parameters. more

INV 6: ATEX Fermentation Unit (7L)

Unique opportunity for SMEs: By the end of 2014, Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant will have a 7L ATEX fermentation unit. more

INV 5: Anaerobic Chamber System

UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR SMEs: in November 2013, Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant installed an anaerobic chamber allowing to perform manipulation of biomass and products in absence of oxygen. This set-up is unique in Europe. more

INV 2,3 and 4: 15m3 Industrial High Cell Density Fermentation Vessel with Feed and Energy Balance System

Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant will have a 15m3 industrial high cell density fermentation vessel operational in November 2014. A fermenter feed system and an energy balance system are also included in this investment. more

INV 1: 7L Fermentors with ELSD HPLC and RI-UV HPLC

In July 2013, 7 L fermenters with auxiliaries and HPLC analytical equipment (1x HPLC-ELSD, 1x HPLC-RI/UV) were installed at Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. The 7L fermenters play a crucial role in developing an industrial process. more
