Second Generation Biofuel Pilot Facility
Location: Guildford, England
Scope: Overall process design and build of second generation pilot facility capable of handling a range of lignocellulosic feedstocks.
Briggs of Burton worked with TMO Renewables to design and build their Process Development Unit (PDU) to scale-up from current laboratory operations and also optimise a bioethanol process for the commercialisation of the technology. The PDU was designed to be capable of accepting a wide variety of raw material feed stocks to generate ethanol from fermentable sugars, and also included a smaller scale pilot “Scale-through” plant.
