A SHARED PILOTING FACILITY
EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES
OPERATING FROM LAB TO MULTI-TON SCALE
Moving from lab to pilot scale can present major risks to many companies due to the high cost of equipment and expertise, with no guarantees for successful commercialization.
AST provides a flexible and advanced pilot plant for bio-based products and processes that can assist clients in different phases of a project, from research to product.
By taking advantage of AST's equipment and services, clients are able to immediately move from laboratory to pilot phase, helping them to not only minimize their financial risks, but to also considerably speed up their progress.
Through our ongoing collaborations with two Fortune 500 clients, AST's facilities and services are currently being used to develop innovative processes to convert their particular lignocellulosic biomass into line board pulp, high quality lignin, and C6 sugar.
