We are a dedicated biomass laboratory whose team of experts provide you with the most precise data, allowing you to make the best use of your biomass feedstocks and optimise your biomass conversion processes.
"We see huge potential for biomass to sustainably meet global energy and material needs. Through innovation, passion, and determination, we at Celignis strive to make a difference in the development of the bioeconomy."
Daniel Hayes, CEO
The UNRAVEL project (UNique Refinery Approach to Valorise European Lignocellulosics) is focused on the optimsiation of a biomass pre-treatment technology. Celignis plays a key role by analysing and evaluating the extractives present in a wide variety of feedstocks and determining how they influence pre-treatment.
Further info... Enxylascope aims at bioprospecting and producing a novel set of xylan debranching enzymes, thereby demonstrating its ability to make xylan a key ingredient in a variety of consumer products. Celignis is playing a key role, being the technical lead and responsible for the extraction and modification of xylan from biomass.
Further info... VAMOS concerns the construction and operation of a demonstration-scale biorefinery producing lactic acid from the paper fraction of municipal waste. In the project Celignis will develop custom NIR models for the rapid at-line on-site analysis of the feedstock and process outputs.
Further info... DIBANET was an FP7 research project, written and coordinated by Celignis founder Dan Hayes, that concerned the production of second generation biofuels from biomass feedstocks in Europe and Latin America. The advances in the state of the art of biomass analysis made in DIBANET led to the formation of Celignis.
Further info... This demo project involves innovative superheated steam processing of unwanted bush and invasive biomass into high-value, clean-burning, low-cost solid biofuel. Celignis will analyse feedstocks, and process outputs, and use our QTOF-LC/MS system to profile the steam condensate for high value chemicals. We will then develop a method to recover target constituents.
Further info... BIO4AFRICA will empower smallholder farmers by creating value from locally available biomass. Celignis is analysing a wide range of biomass feedstocks, from a number of African countries, and providing recommendations regarding the most suitable ones, under the best conditions, for the given processing technology. We also analyse the outputs of the various processes.
PhD (Analytical Chemistry)
Dreamer and achiever. Took Celignis from a concept in a research project to being the bioeconomy's premier provider of analytical and bioprocessing expertise.
Lalitha is currently working on the Horizon 2020 project ENABLING, finding best practices for stakeholders in the bioeconomy and profiling the quantities and composition of different feedstocks across Europe.
Our Biomass Detective! Designs, tests, optimizes and validates robust analytical methods for the identification and quantification of functional molecules. Expertise in metabolite profiling, isolation and purification.
A dynamic, purpose-driven chemical engineer with expertise in bioprocess development, process design, simulation and techno-economic analysis over several years in the bioeconomy sector.
Undertaking a PhD at Celignis focused on advancing the art of anaerobic digestion technologies relevant to Irish farming communities.
Chemical engineer with advanced knowledge in process development and simulation of biomass modification and valorisation technologies.
An enthusiast for the bioeconomy with 10+ years of involvement in the polymers and textiles space.
Currently developing and deploying tools to increase productivity in the Celignis laboratories.
Biomass is complex. One approach won't work. But with the right mix of composition, technology, and product it can be profitable and sustainable. We're scientists with business brains. Let us help you find the right path.
We know how important your samples are and your need to access data quickly and easily. That's is why we created the Celignis Database where you can view results as the order is ongoing.
Celignis was formed based on research that revolutionised the rapid analysis of advanced biofuel feedstocks. We constantly ask ourselves how things can be done better and what our next revolution will be.
