About the modular bioreactor platform
The Modular Bioreactor Platform consists of different types of bioreactors that can be used in sequential and/or parallel configuration. The platform is specifically suitable for investigating sustainable solutions for environmental challenges. In brief, it allows investigation of undefined complex waste streams with undefined microbial communities in defined reactors.

Frequently asked questions
What can the Modular Bioreactor Platform be used for?
The Modular Bioreactor Platform is specifically suitable for investigating sustainable solutions for environmental challenges, such as degradation of (micro)pollutants, sustainable energy generation and recovery of resources from complex waste streams. For more examples on the type of research that can be done, please consult the technical details or related blog posts below.
What experimental conditions does the Modular Bioreactor Platform offer?
The flexible arrangement of automatic sampling and analytical equipment enables the investigation of a number of environmental conditions, such as redox, temperature, pressure and pH. It also allows the identification of the compounds transformed and produced by the present microbial community.
What type of bioreactors does the Modular Bioreactor Platform use?
The Modular Bioreactor Platform consists of multiple units of different types of bioreactors that can be used in a cascaded set-up as sequential reactors (technology trains) and/or in parallel configuration to allow for the direct comparison of different reactor systems. The reactors range from standard bioreactors to outdoor constructed wetlands. For more info, see the technical details below.
