An international biorefinery hub. Processum has during a number of years purposefully built up a set of pilot equipment aimed at biorefinery projects. The equipment consists of pilots for thermochemical pre-treatment, biochemical processes, thermochemical syntheses as well as pilots for separations. A broad spectrum of biomasses, like forest raw materials of all kinds as well as industrial residual streams and waste materials, can in pilot scale be converted to e.g. materials, proteins, bioenergy and chemicals. There are also pilot equipment for algae, torrefaction and drying trials in Umeå.
In our industry simulation environment, projects can be followed all the way from laboratory scale to demonstration scale, which makes the place unique and to an internationally recognised place for biorefinery development based on forest raw materials. Apart from the comprehensive set of pilot equipment, there is also a large demonstration plant for biorefinery trial runs and soon also a unique pilot plant for development of nano crystalline cellulose.
