Danish Minister of Business and Industry, Morten Bødskov, inaugurated FermHub Zealand‘s state-of-the-art demonstration facilities 4th October 2023.
FermHub Zealand is reaching the finish line in the process of refurbishing Gørlev’s old sugar works into modern demo and upscaling facilities. From 2024, it will be possible for startups and entrepreneurs to get access to FermHub Zealand.
Big day for zealand’s start-up environment
FermHub Zealand contributes to build a bridge from research and start-up to scale-up and industrial production. A process that many new startups have been forced to take outside Danish borders to avoid landing in the so-called “Valley of Death” due to or lack of access to test and demonstration facilities.
The new demonstration facilities are therefore an important part of the puzzle in Biosolutions Zealand. A project in which several actors across sectors work to withhold the Danish position of strength within biosolutions and continue to support and accelerate the green transition. The aim of the project is to make Zealand a world-leading region for the development of biosolutions.
Through Biosolutions Zealand, investments have been made in pilot plants and other facilities with DTU – Technical University of Denmark, Danish Technological Institute, 21st.BIO, and FermHub Zealand.
FermHub Zealand is financially supported by Andel and Biosolutions Zealand.
