Applicant Wanted for PhD Grant Application


We are recruiting for a person who will be an applicant in our application for funding for a 3 year PhD that will be associated with the University of Limerick but the student will be placed in the Celignis labs (also in Limerick) and employed by the company. The position will involve the following main tasks:

  • Expansion of our current near infrared (NIR) models so that they will be suitable for transfer/use with in-line process equipment at biomass processing facilities
  • Undertaking detailed and selective protocols for the extraction of different chemicals from biomass, the analysis of these extracts, and the development of NIR models for the outputs of the process.
  • Performing detailed chemical analysis of liquid outputs from biomass treatment processes (for example for sugar degradation products and oligomer content/composition) and the development of NIR models for the composition of these liquids
  • Developing NIR models for the anaerobic digestion (AD) sector.

Kick-off Meeting for New H2020 Project ENABLING

Celignis's Dan Hayes is in Rome for the two-day kick-off meeting for new project ENABLING. This is a coordinating and supporting action funded by the H2020-RUR-2017-1 call of the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme.

The title of the project is an acronym that stands for 'Enhance New Approaches in BioBased Local Innovation Networks for Growth'. The focus of the project is on supporting the spreading of best practices and innovation in the provision (production, pre-processing) of biomass for the Bio-Based Industry (BBI). Celignis is one of 16 partners in the project, with the coordinator being ITABIA, the Italian Biomass Association.

Celignis will play a key role in the project with regards to stressing the importance of biomass composition in terms of evaluating feedstock and technology suitability. Over the course of the project we will also be contacting a number of stakeholders, both in Ireland and overseas, and will be involved in the organisation of a number of networking events.
