Wageningen University and Research provides full sustainable biomass-to-products chain development, optimisation and deployment
The Biobased Products Innovation Plant (BBPIP) is a large R&D facility located on Wageningen Campus, the Netherlands. This infrastructure is used by Wageningen Food and Biobased Research (WFBR) scientists (around 150 FTE) to develop innovative processes to convert biomass into food and non-food biobased products and secondary energy carriers.
The goal of WFBR is to accelerate the development of the so-called Circular (Biobased) Economy. Together with industrial partners, governments and other research institutes, WFBR’s Biobased Products focus is on the development of sustainable and economically viable biobased chemicals, materials, fuels and biomass sources for bio-energy.
Over the past three decades WFBR has built up a great extent of knowledge on properties and use of renewable raw materials. WFBR is dedicated to the innovation in the fields of biorefinery, biotechnological and chemical (catalytic) conversion processes and the development of new biobased materials. Intensive cooperation with industrial partners and SMEs drives WFBR to create market-oriented solutions.
The BPIP infrastructure, including installations available to BRISK2 applicants, is currently being used in the portfolios of both national and international bilateral and public-private projects within the whole BioEconomy framework.
