Succesful Scale Up for Global Bioenergies
BPF successfully carried out the C3 process which enables the production of renewable isopropanol and acetone, at demo plant scale for its customer Global Bioenergies.
The fermentation profile obtained in the 4 m3 fermenter reproduced those obtained at laboratory and pilot scale. Frédéric Pâques, COO of Global Bioenergies, stated: “The close collaboration between the teams at Global Bioenergies and BPF was key to reach success. BPF has shown reactivity and a thorough industrial experience. The results not only validate this scale-up step, but also demonstrate the robustness of our process.”
