Bioprocessing Facilities: The Cost Effective Way to Investigate How Products Respond To Scale-Up

Gain full access to bioprocessing facility at Bio-based Chemicals Conference and Exhibition

London (United Kingdom), December 19th, 2012 – At a time when raising capital is more difficult than ever, the benefits for renewable chemicals companies to test product processes at a larger scale before parting with the capex for a commercial scale facility are obvious. Attendees at the upcoming Bio-based Chemicals Conference and Exhibition ( - 13 & 14 March 2013, Rotterdam) will have the opportunity to discover first-hand the advantages of a multi-function bioprocessing facility as part of a guided tour and extended networking opportunity.

A new feature for the 5th annual conference, and taking place on 12 March before the conference begins, registered delegates will be given the opportunity to tour the Biotech Campus Delft (BTCD), located in Delft North on DSM premises as well as visit to the Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF) .
The BTCD offers the possibility for R&D and/or full production through its facilities in industrial biotechnology and life sciences. Located on the BTCD, the BPF is a unique multi-purpose facility to scale up and develop bioprocesses. Its modular setup (the tour through the BPF will show both the fermentation and downstream process modules) allows for specific selection of the tested method and offers users flexibility when they opt to test their bioprocesses at the facility prior to scaling up. This gives clients the benefit of detecting and studying issues that do not occur at laboratory scale.
Bioprocess Pilot Facility will also join the speaker faculty at the conference; hear from them and many others at the 5th annual Bio-based Chemicals Conference in Rotterdam which will unite leaders to accelerate commercialisation, innovation and market uptake. Leading industry professionals from big chemical companies (DSM, Bayer), end users (PepsiCo, Danone, Kimberly Clark), pioneering renewable chemical companies (Avantium, Bioamber, Elevance), feedstock producers, technology providers and financiers will speak and attend to debate the strategic trajectory of the bio-based economy, updates on recent collaborations, discussions on commercial scale product realisation and join the end user debate as part of the 2013 agenda.
Bio-based Chemicals ( will once again be co-located with the 8th annual World Biofuels Markets Congress & Exhibition ( - which will bring together over 1500 decision-making delegates, thought-leading speakers and world-class sponsors from every part of the biofuels value chain, in one place at one time, to network and debate the most current topics. Two industry-leading events for the price of one: Register for Bio-based Chemicals or World Biofuels Markets and attend either event on the days you register for. Visit for more information.
Bio-based Chemicals and World Biofuels Markets, organised by Green Power Conferences, will be held on March 12-14 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The Bio-based Chemicals Conference takes place on March 13 and 14 and the site visit on March 12.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
