BioPilotsUK combines the nation’s leading expertise and facilities to help businesses develop and scale-up new sustainable processes to commercialise products from biomass, including: plants, algae, by-products and wastes. Due to the varied nature of the raw materials, or feedstocks, there is no one size fits all approach, rather a series of technologies that must be trialled and combined to maximise the opportunity.
Together, the BioPilotsUK centres can offer the key components required to accelerate and de-risk your bio-based projects, through access to:
- highly-qualified specialists in genetic analysis, industrial biotechnology, green chemistry and chemical engineering;
- a broad range of discovery to demonstration scale technologies to convert biomass into useful products; and
- the accompanying analytical services and market awareness to assess viability of an idea.
We provide access to the UK’s leading biorefining centres and through them, to a number of key academic institutions pioneering new bio-based ideas as well as investors and bio-based businesses all along the supply chain.
Our facilities are all underpinned by a range of fully serviced laboratories, analytical assessment capabilities and infrastructure to support bio-based projects at every stage of development.
