Design and validation of a novel concept, based on VTT’s or the client’s own IPR, often require experimental work and verification at laboratory sale followed by further scale-up into semi-pilot or pilot-scale. VTT’s capabilities offer a continuum in concept development, combining our lab scale capabilities and unique tailorable pilot environments for waste materials.
In evaluating a new concept or process, it is a necessary step to run and iterate the process in real-life, keeping track of the techno-economical parameters as well . At VTT, our flexible pilot environments offer a cost-efficient way to run trials without early investment in one’s own capacity.
