UPGRADE & MODIFICATION PLAN
  1. Improvement of biomass fractionation capabilities by implementation of grinding and milling equipment. BBEPP purchased a cutter mill (firm: Proxes) with 50 L working volume in the first quarter of 2021. This machine is a big blender, that will be used for the size reduction of many biomasses prior to hydrolysis.
  2. Ongoing process of setting up an automated dosing of base/acid to BBEPP’s hydrolysis tanks. There will be 2x2 lines installed for additions to improve process handling.
