Material development from design to scale up

Sustainable materials play a central role for the future of a healthy planet, and they are in high demand but short supply. RISE accelerates the process of turning new biobased materials into functional and sustainable products – at scale.

Scaling a small batch of a material from lab to pilot scale poses a great deal of challenges. We take these challenges on by:

  • Optimizing the production process from the scholarly to the industrially viable one
  • Performing pilot runs in the kilogram scale
  • Understanding the effects of scaling up on both material and process.


Our mission is to swiftly scale-up new biobased materials for:

  • Demonstrators
  • Testing in real environments
  • User evaluation.  

Our projects are based on modules for simple and swift planning, iteration, and evaluation. Optimization is always based on requirements and performance indicators, such as product performance, technological feasibility or environmental impact, are identified and prioritized in advance.  

Fail fast

Through this concept, we offer a quick evaluation of biobased materials followed by an early user evaluation and application tests. This way, you can quickly find out about the potential of your idea while we can help you with upscaling trials at an industrial scale (10 - 100 kg) meaning you can also reach a higher TRL/CRL level.
