NREL's Biochemical Conversion Pilot Plant Capabilities

Research output: NRELFact Sheet


NREL's biochemical conversion plant is a flexible pilot plant for testing a wide range of bio-based technologies for producing renewable fuels and byproducts. The biochemical conversion pilot plant is housed in the Integrated Biorefinery Research Facility located on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL's) main campus. The facility provides industry partners the opportunity to test and develop their own biorefining technology using NREL equipment or rental equipment that can be brought into the plant. The pilot plant can process materials up to one dry ton per day in an integrated fashion using a variety of operating modes including batch, fed-batch, and continuous processing.
