Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant and nova-Institute announced their strategic partnership in the biobased economy. The unique offer for development and scale-up of biobased products and processes by the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant is now complemented with the economic and environmental analysis of novel processes by nova-Institute.
Hürth/Germany – The development of products from sustainable resources and processes too often fails to step out of the research laboratories. From today on, companies and research institutes can rely on the expertise of the nova-Institute and the Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant for the choice of feedstock, the life cycle analysis of the novel product, a marketing strategy, the development of a scalable process, the production of the first sample material for application testing and the custom manufacturing of the first tonnes of product to enter the market.
Managing director of the nova-Institute Michael Carus: „Together we can support biobased innovation from the lab scale to commercial scale and markets. Techno-economic and environmental evaluations are an invaluable tool to steer pilot plant processing and optimizations.“
Managing Director of Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant Wim Soetaert: “By joining forces with the nova-Institute, our extensive expertise in bioprocessing is now complemented with techno-economic and environmental analysis.
