Industrial Biotechnology and Biorefining

Industrial Biotechnology and Biorefining


CPI bridges the gap between early stage concept and scalable commercial process. Early and mid-stage technologies are characterised against scale-associated risk and guided by an understanding of relevant cost contribution.

Utilising our state of the art facilities and technical expertise, we help our clients to de-risk process development. This is achieved through proof of concept testing to accelerate the commercialisation of new products and process technologies. Our multidisciplinary team has completed feasibility assessments, process development projects and piloting studies for UK, European and international clients.

CPI can help commercialise your ideas and take them to market faster and with minimal risk. Our services are built around each of the following themes:

  • Technology landscaping and technical due diligence
  • Process guidance for relevant targeted host-strain development
  • Process modelling and optimisation
  • Techno-economic process benchmarking and plant build cost estimation
  • Process scale-up and demonstration

We have the capability to deliver both in depth development programs using our range of technology development services as well as less complex projects with a simple goal.
