Acies Bio sets-up new pilot processing plant
As part of EU’s Horizon 2020 SME INSTRUMENT program, Acies Bio received a grant in 2015 to demonstrate zero-waste production of vitamin B12 with Whey2Value technology.
After a year of Whey2Value project’s implementation, Acies Bio has reached a very important milestone – set-up of a new pilot demonstration facility. It is located on the outskirts of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in Kamnik.
The set-up of W2V pilot demonstration facility is a very important step in bringing zero-waste production of vitamin B12 on the market as it will be used for technology transfer and scale-up activities. According to the preliminary tests, it is expected that the technology transfer from laboratory to pilot scale will be extremely successful with high vitamin B12 yields obtained.
This is a proof that the W2V technology is a perfect example of circular economy.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 697958.
