Flanders and The Netherlands have joined forces in Bio Base Europe, to build state of the art research and training facilities to speed up economic growth, innovation capacity and sustainable development in our society. The founding partners of Bio Base Europe are Ghent Bio Economy Valley and Biopark Terneuzen.
In Ghent, The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant was established. It is a flexible and diversified pilot plant that operates at tonne scale. It is there to close the critical gap between the scientific feasibility and industrial application of new biotechnological processes.
The Bio Base Europe Training Centre in Terneuzen is a centre for education, network and exhibition that promotes the development of a sustainable biobased economy. It offers general and company-specific training and is closely attuned to market demand.
