• Biomass Research
    Our Past, Present, and Future

In the bioeconomy if you stand still you end up being left behind.
Celignis was born from pioneering research and we are still passionately committed to playing our part in advancing the bioeconomy

Our Research History

Celignis founder Dan Hayes wrote and managed a project, DIBANET, funded by the European Union's FP7 Energy programme. It involved collaborative research between 13 partners from Europe and Latin America to develop biorefining technologies.

One output of DIBANET was the development of rapid biomass analysis models which led to Dan spinning-out Celignis in 2014.

Prior to that he also wrote and managed a number of other research projects during his placement at the University of Limerick.

Our Present Research

Celignis is currently participating in several collaborative EU research projects, including a number funded by CBE-JU, the Circular Bioeconomy Europe Joint Undertaking. Click here to see more details about our current research projects.

We are also active in a number of national research projects and are continually active in our own internal research to advance the state of the art in the analysis and use of biomass.

Our Ambitions for the Future

We are eager to continue to collaborate with partners in research projects that will help to advance the bioeconomy. We have identified a number of areas within the research programmes of Horizon Europe, particularly in the Circular Bioeconomy Europe Joint Undertaking in which we could be valuable partners in future proposals.
