Biobased Products Innovation Plant

The Biobased Products Innovation Plant is a large R&D facility used by Wageningen Food & Biobased Research scientists to develop innovative processes to convert green raw materials (biomass) into biobased products.

In our Innovation Plant, we bring innovative ideas into reality, enabling R&D from laboratory towards pilot scale. Depending on your specific request we will deploy an optimal combination of experts, technologies and equipment in the fields of biorefinery, (chemical/microbial/enzymatic) conversion and materials processing.
