Successful delivery Advanced Course on Bioprocess Design

Last week Planet hosted the Advanced Course on Bioprocess Design (4 – 8 Oct. 2021) on the Biotech Campus Delft, organized by BioTech Delft. During this course 27 participants - 16 on site and 11 online – from industry and universities participated.

The course aimed to familiarize participants with the design of innovative microbial fermentations, for bio-products such as amino acids and monomers for bio-plastics, complemented with examples of marine and mammalian processes, for micro-algae products and bio-pharmaceuticals.

Faculty staff, together with invited (inter)national experts from leading universities and industries in the bioprocess field, offered a combination of lectures, exercises and demonstrations, providing latest insights in technology innovations, non-conventional feedstocks and new bio-product categories, complemented with views from the industrial practice.

Learning about the state-of-the-art in bioprocesses triggered new ideas to make advances in my work and contribute to expand the knowledge of the field.”
