Technical specifications of DAB.bio’s FAST fermenter for demonstration and small-scale production

DAB.bio’s novel FAST bioreactor (Fermentation Accelerated by Separation Technology) is now available for demonstration or small-scale industrial production at Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) in Ghent, Belgium. FAST reduces manufacturing costs and intensifies fermentations by combining state-of-the-art fermentation and real-time product recovery into a single unit. It supports a wide range of biobased products and processes and can be used as a stand-alone 500 liter unit or operated as an add-on to a BBEPP 12,000 liter fermenter, which effectively has become the world’s first continuous fermenter.
