Organisation profile

At PILOT PLANT our main activities are based on the path from laboratory scale to pilot scale experimental processes with a strong focus on industrial practice.

About us

At PILOT PLANT we focus on unit operations, reaction engineering, process control, process and plant design, instrumentation, automation and industrial measuring technology, but also topics such as scale-up and scale-down and batch versus continuous processes. Special focus areas are fermentation mainly from a process point-of-view, but also innovative technology and particle technology.

Our research

Our research is conducted within plant and process technology, equipment design, Process Analytical Technology (PAT) automation and instrumentation and construction materials in close collaboration with industrial partners. Our technical expertise include:

  • Designing and building large scale plants (engineering, construction)
  • Unit operations (theory and practice)
  • Industrial chemical processes (design complete process)
  • Operational experience (solving practical process problems)
  • Project management
  • Design of experiments
  • Plant safety
  • Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP)

We opened the doors to our research centre in autumn 2015.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
