Company profile

Scale-up research is very risky and requires extensive experimentation using advanced equipment.

An R&D facility dedicated to bioprocesses scale-up is so complex and expensive that it can only be realized in a broad collaboration. This is why a unique multi-purpose facility was developed where universities, companies and knowledge institutions from all over the world can investigate how production processes respond to large scales and how they can be scaled up. Here, issues that do not occur at laboratory scale can be detected and studied.

Partners and location

The Bioprocess Pilot Facility is situated in Delft by a consortium of industrial partners and knowledge institutions led by Delft University of Technology. Small and large companies and knowledge institutions from the agro, paper and chemical industrial sectors have already expressed interest in using the facility.
