This facility will be a center of expertise and technology open to researchers and students from all over the world.
From feedstock to product
The BPF is a truly multi-purpose pilot facility, which is also illustrated by this overview of technologies and unit operations that this pilot plant can offer you in a flexible mode.
Feedstock Receival and Physical Size Reduction
The BPF can store and process a large variety of lignocellulosic feedstocks (e.g. straw, bagasse, corn stover) as well as other co-products from agricultural, forest or waste origin.
In our feedstock receival and size reduction area, the feedstock is treated to be fed into the Pilot Scale Pretreatment Unit.
