To support our work on second generation liquid biofuels production from waste feedstock we have small-scale fermentation equipment with associated downstream processing.

This includes Applikon 3 and 5-litre fermenters with bioconsoles, AKTA cross-flow membrane filtration test rig, millipore flat plate cross flow filtration system, PAL reverse osmosis unit and a range of equipment for hybridisation studies and enzymic hydrolysis.
