Description

The ABPDU at LBNL has a unique mission to partner with industry, National Labs, Bioenergy Research Centers, and academia to optimize, integrate and scale production processes for advanced biofuels, bio-based chemicals and biomaterials. The ABPDU is a pilot facility with state-of-the-art development and scale-up equipment and unit operations spanning biomass deconstruction, fermentation bio-processing, downstream recovery, purification, and analytical chemistry. Flexible process configurations and order of operations make the ABPDU a premier site and partner to address unique challenges of development, integration and scale-up of novel biological and chemical processes from an array of feedstocks such as agricultural residue, energy crops and municipal waste streams. The facility was commissioned in 2012 and its construction was funded by DOE’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE) using monies from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The ABPDU, working with EERE’s Bioenergy Technologies Office, is playing an active role in enabling the companies and technologies to build the US Bioeconomy.
