Business Focus

Bio Base Europe is the first open innovation and education center for the biobased economy in Europe, consisting of a Bioprocess Pilot Plant in Ghent and a Training Facility in Terneuzen. The pilot plant in Ghent aids its customers (Spin-off companies, research institutes, SMEs and multinationals) in the scale up of bioprocesses such as pretreatment of biomass, biocatalysis, fermentation, green chemistry and downstream purification.


Company Profile

The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant in Ghent (Belgium) is a flexible and diversified pilot plant that operates from kg to ton scale. It is there to close the critical gap between scientific feasibility and industrial application of new biotechnological processes.  It is a one-stop-shop that performs the entire value chain in a single plant, from the biomass green resource to the final product. The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant focuses  on second generation technologies converting agricultural waste products and non-food crops into biofuels, bioplastics and other bioproducts.

The Bio Base Europe Training Center  in Terneuzen (The Netherlands ) is an education, network and exhibition center promoting the development of a sustainable,  biobased economy. It offers general and company-specific training connecting closely with the market demand. It addresses an industry-wide shortage of skilled process operators and technical maintenance specialists for biobased and sustainable energy processes.
