Fermentation Facility

The Fermentation Facility is designed to help researchers develop new fermentation technologies and products and to provide benchtop- and pilot-scale fermentation equipment. The facility has equipment for scaling up the production of industrially important chemicals, chemical feedstocks, genetically modified organisms, and enzymes.

The facility gives researchers access to state-of the-art equipment and expertise in the areas of microbial fermentation and product recovery.

The Fermentation Facility is a partnership between the Center for Crops Utilization Research, Office of Biotechnology, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and Bioeconomy Institute.
