IMPACT of the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant in industrial biotechnology

ERDF Flanders and Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) signed an agreement for an investment of €9,36 million in the frame of the IMPACT project. This investment is financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Flanders, the Province of East-Flanders, the City of Ghent and the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant. The financing will be used to build up new research infrastructure specifically for gas fermentation and Down-Stream Processing.

Gas fermentation is an innovative and sustainable technology with enormous potential in terms of carbon footprint reduction. It uses micro-organisms to convert waste gasses such as CO2 and syngas into a wide spectrum of chemicals. Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant will build a unique scale-up facility for gas fermentation with the aim to expand into a global reference for gas fermentation and to make Flanders thé testing ground for this sustainable technology. Down-Stream Processing comprises the isolation and purification of a product after a biotechnological or chemical conversion step. This investment will also enable Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant to enlarge its Down-Stream Processing capacity at high TRL (Technology Readiness Level) level, allowing the pilot facility to use the full potential of its 15m3 fermenters.
