Our Collaborations




Our R&D experience and focus are related to the mechanical details of bioreactors and downstream processes, with the aim of new equipment designs, the integration of on-site process analytical technologies within our software solutions for the complete automation of bioprocesses, new ways of applying filtration and separation processes in a wide range of bioproducts and continuous processes through the combination of bioreactors and subsequent membranes.



GreenUpGas project, the first upgrading technology based on a 100% biological treatment.

Developing the GreenUpGas technology is the main objective of this project, which consists on the agro-industrial biogas refinement biological process for the obtaining of biomethane available for the injection in gas nets or its use as a biofuel in vehicles.



Valorisation of Vegetable Processing Industry Remnants into High-Value Functional Proteins and other Food Ingredients.

GreenProtein is an European project which aims at a major innovation in the fields of protein production and food loss reduction in the EU by producing high-added value, food-grade functional proteins and other ingredients, out of green field waste.



Bioprocessing Strategies for high productivity in the Culture of Human Stem Cells in Stirred-Tank Bioreactors and their downstream.

Cell-based therapies have generated great interest in the scientific and medical communities, and stem cells in particular are very appealing for regenerative medicine, drug screening and other biomedical applications.

CELL4ALL addresses the culture of human stem cells in controlled stirred-tank bioreactors, and their downstream, with the final purpose of

increasing productivity and lowering costs with regards to existing solutions.



Comprehensive recovery of animal by-products for the production of bioplastics and biomethane.

The use of waste with high fat content through codigestion in facilities available in the treatment plants has several advantages. The AD-VISor project will optimize the use of the anaerobic digesters for this purpose, by validating a pre-heat treatment and innovative control systems, that will increase the treatment capacity and guarantee the efficiency of the process for obtaining valuable products. The use of fatty waste will be carried out through its transformation into bioplastics of high added value. The proposed solution will be validated using substrates from the local meat industry.



A timely strategic action that will enable the EU to lead worldwide the syngas fermentation technology for waste revalorisation and sustainable biopolymer production.

SYNPOL will establish a platform that integrates biopolymer production through modern processing technologies, with bacterial fermentation of syngas, and the pyrolysis of highly complex biowaste. The R&D activities will focus on the integration of innovative physico-chemical, biochemical, downstream and synthetic technologies to produce a wide range of new biopolymers.

Thus, the SYNPOL platform will empower the treatment and recycling of complex biological and chemical wastes and raw materials in a single integrated process. The knowledge generated through this innovative biotechnological approach will not only benefit the environmental management of terrestrial wastes, but also reduce the harmful environmental impact of petrochemical plastics.



Boosting innovative Digitech Value chains for Agrofood, forestry and environment.

The DIVA project develops a next generation CIP system with an integrated membrane filtration module to create a closed loop for the recovery, remediation and multiple re-use of cleaning chemicals. The module can also be retrofitted to existing CIP plants and integrated into existing process control, plant supervisory, environmental monitoring or enterprise resource management systems.

The next generation SmartCIP system will bring greater Quality Control to the CIP process, as cleaning with a purified cleaning solution is always automatically verified and assured. The feasibility of recovering & remediating more than 95% of sodium hydroxide from spent industrial CIP cleaning solutions using the proposed filtration membranes has been demonstrated at pilot scale at cubic metre batch size.



Equipping the next generation to lead the future of the European bio-based industry sector - Development of bioprocesses for the bioeconomy using continuous manufacturing.

Bionet is proud to participate in the ambitious Talent4BBI project, an MSC Research Fellowship programme. This is a great example of Bionets values and objectives regarding collaboration, education and social contribution. This project will be led by BiOrbic, Bioeconomy SFI Research Centre located in University College Dublin (UCD). Talent4BBI brings together 9 industry and 7 academic partners in 8 Member States and 1 Associated Country with the aim of training a cohort of 11 highly skilled industry-ready ESRs equipped to lead the future of the European bio-based industry sector.

Advanced bioreactor for the manufacture of vaccines
