Fermentation Facility

The Iowa State University Fermentation Facility is designed to help researchers develop new fermentation technologies and products and provide bench- and pilot-scale fermentation equipment.

The Fermentation Facility has equipment for scaling up the production of industrially important chemicals, chemical feedstocks, genetically modified organisms and enzymes.
Researchers have access to state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in the areas of microbial fermentation and product recovery. By using the facility’s equipment and expertise, industry clients have found a cost-effective way to test new products and processes.

The Fermentation Facility is managed by the Center for Crops Utilization Research with additional funding provided by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
