We helped to develop the Bioprocess Pilot Facility BV, enabling firms to produce bio-based materials on an industrial scale.
To improve their environmental performance, organisations increasingly use renewable resources – such as biofuels and bio-based chemicals – in the production of chemicals, materials and fuels. As bio-based materials require micro-organisms that ideally require laboratory conditions, producing them on an industrial scale can be problematic.
To provide a service to firms moving from laboratory to factory-based production, biotech firms CSM/Purac and DSM, along with the Delft University of Technology, wanted to launch a joint venture, the Bioprocess Pilot Facility BV (BPF).
After the BPF had been established as a legal entity, we worked closely with the BPF management team to develop a business plan; making use of market insights to define market segmentation, sector focus and the BPF value proposition. Alongside this, we helped to create an implementation plan which outlined the organisation’s structure and key work processes. Finally, we facilitated discussions between the BPF and a number of parties to explore potential strategic partnerships.
