October 2016: construction of Power-to-Protein reactor almost completed

The photo shows the Power-to-Protein pilot under construction for phase 2 of the research earlier this month. More precisely it shows the lower part of the Power-to-Protein reactor that forms the heart of the pilot plant. The pilot was built by Maris Machinery in Schijndel (NL) under supervision of Avecom.

In the following weeks watertests will be performed to check the functionality of the pilot and after that te reactor will be filled with the microbioom that should be able to produce single cell proteins from ammonia, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. First stop for the pilot plant is the SWTP Enschede of Water Board Vechtstromen.
