We develop and refine processes to efficiently valorise biomass. We can work on individual stages of a process, or develop a bespoke vertically-integrated technology based on your feedstock or desired end-product. This can be done at lab-scale up to the 100 litre level. Our in-depth understanding of biomass chemistry, our extensive array of bioprocessing equipment, and the biological, engineering, and commercial experience of our Bioprocess team, all play crucial roles in ensuring that our projects are well-designed and focused on our clients' end-goals.
We have all the necessary analytical and bioprocess equipment, coupled with the expertise of our team, to undertake comprehensive projects for feedstock valorisation. We provide detailed reports which include key summaries of our findings.
A large array of chemicals and materials are possible from biomass and wastes. These can involve chemical or biological approaches, or a combination of the two. Based on your desired end-product we can design and test the most appropriate bioprocess.
We can undertake a detailed review of your existing bioprocess and identify key nodes where the process can be improved according to various metrics (yields, titres, purity, chemical use etc.). We then design a series of experiments to achieve the targeted objectives. These conditions can then be replicated at higher TRL levels.
We work closely with you to understand your objectives and timelines. We then propose a project, usually covering a series of deliverables and stage-gates. Often our projects involve optimising conditions at the lab-scale before replicating the conditions at higher TRL levels.
Celignis provides valued services to over 1000 clients across the globe. We know how the focus of projects can differ between countries and have customs-exemptions for samples sent to us, allowing us to quickly get to work no matter where our clients are based.
Has a deep understanding of all biological and chemical aspects of bioproceses. Has developed Celignis into a renowned provider of bioprocess development services to a global network of clients.
BSc, MSc, Phd (yr 4)
A versatile chemical engineer whose PhD focused on optimising bioprocess conditions for Irish feedstocks. Kwame is now managing several of Celignis's bioprocess development projects.
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.
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.
Our Biomass Detective! Designs, tests, optimizes and validates robust analytical methods for our bioprocess development projects. Such bespoke analysis is key to developing an optimised bioprocess.
Feeds on quality data! Piotr plays a major role in data processing and Orders management at Celignis and is responsible for ensuring bioprocess data are rapidly uploaded to the Celignis Database.
