Bring ideas into industrial use

Pilot plants facilities are the key in the innovation process to bring new technology into practice and thereby creating benefit for the industry. By bringing processes and techniques from a low TRL to high TRL, pilot-plant trials are of great importance to minimize technical and financial risks. Consequently, access to pilot plants is necessary to bring ideas or concepts into industrial use, i.e. “Crossing the valley of death”.
