PFI is interested to participate as a research partner in following fields:
- Developing energy sources based on biomass
- Using renewable resources on an industrial scale
Our applied research activities include biomass conversion to platform chemicals, physico-chemical biomass pretreatment, fermentation, anaerobic digestion, biotechnological methanation, enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulose, enzyme production, biorefinery development, etc.
Our technical center is equipped with lab- and pilot scale reactors useful for scale-up. We also have large scale AD plant with CHP and methanation reactors
