Upscaling of a fermentation process for PHB production

  • 2021

PROJECT SCOPE

  • Demonstration of a process for the production of PHB (polyhydroxybutyrate) using biowaste as feedstock, including:
    • Feedstock conditioning
    • Enzymatic hydrolysis
    • Hydrolysate recovering
    • Detoxification
    • Fermentation
    • Biomass separation
    • Purification
    • Compounding
    • Production of two prototypes

CENER ROLE

  • Project coordination
  • Plant operation up to fermentation stage:
    • 1st stage upscaling to PILOT plant – 100 -200 L
    • 2nd stage upscaling to DEMO plant: 1.000-3.000 L
  • Monitoring of the process and data recording of relevant parameters.
