Chief Pilot: The ABPDU, Where the Elite Meet to Defeat Petroleum

Submitted by on December 15, 2016 – 12:11 pmNo Comment

by Jim Lane (Biofuels Digest)  …  “Advanced Biofuels Process Demonstration Unit.”  It’s run out of the Berkeley Lab, and is the technology center behind the technology centers, if you will, of companies such as Kiverdi, Sylvatex, Perfect Day, Lygos, Microvi, and Greenlight Biosciences to name just a few.

They’ve been operational since 2012, collaborating with researchers in the bio-products industry, the National Labs, and academia to optimize and scale technologies to enable the commercialization of bio-based chemicals, materials, and fuels. Specific among the services are Bio-process Prototyping & Optimization, Concept Development & Validation, Scale-up Integration & Demonstration, plus Funding & Grant Proposals Support.

Pretreatment, saccharification, fermentation, purification & advanced recovery, analytical chemistry, materials handling & solids characterization, and techno-economic analysis? The Unit does it all.

But not limited these days to fuels. Toss in specialty chemicals, food and feed, materials. packaging, industrial chemicals as well.

And, it can cost less than one thinks, via the DOE’s Small Business Voucher program. Through this innovative project aimed at facilitating process development, the Bioenergy Technologies Office in August provided $1 million in vouchers to assist three companies advance their energy technologies that will be collaborating with ABPDU.

ABPDU produces, handles and analyzes alcohols, organic acids, hydrocarbons, terpenes, ketones, fatty acids, lipids, proteins and enzymes.    READ MORE includes VIDEO
