The Process Development Unit (PDU) is sponsored mainly by the Swedish Energy Agency and used for research. The PDU group has a long and succesful tradition within the lignocellulose-to-bioethanol, but also in biorefeinery applications. The PDU is located at the department of Chemical Engineering at Lund University, one the most well-known universities in Europe.

Lund University was founded in 1666 and for a number of years has been ranked among the world's top 100 universities. Lund University has 47 700 students and 7 500 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

The PDU is staffed with personnel with long-time experience of pretreatment, hydrolysis and fermentation, as well as the analytical skills required to perform state-of-the-art research in the field of bioethanol and biorefinery.
