    We use advanced equipment to ensure quality data are obtained.

We analyse biomass for properties relevant to biological or chemical conversion to fuels (e.g. structural sugars and lignin contents).

More

Important properties relating to the combustion of biomass that we analyse include the heating value, elemental composition, ash, and moisture contents.

More

We have developed accurate and robust near infrared spectroscopy models that allow rapid low-cost alternatives for predicting some constituents.

More

We can quantify a wide number of carbohydrates, their degradation products, and the oligosaccharide contents in liquid outputs from conversion processes.

More

We have developed methods to determine the carbohydrate composition of seaweed samples, including uronic acids, fucose, and sugar alcohols.

More

There are several packages for characterising the bio-oil product from pyrolysis. We can quantify anhydrosugars and numerous other oxgenated components.

With Accurate Data The Opportunities Are Limitless

At Celignis Biomass Analysis Laboratory we offer a range of analyses to provide vital compositional data to help you determine whether your biomass samples are suitable for the production of biofuels, chemicals, or energy.

We maintain the highest standards of accuracy and precision in our work and are suitably sized to provide results in a rapid turnaround. Celignis is the only company to offer near infrared analysis for the rapid characterisation of biomass samples for their important lignocellulosic properties (e.g. lignin, cellulose, etc.). This rapid analysis allows us to typically provide analytical data within one day of receiving the sample.

We have also developed a user-friendly online system for placing orders and viewing data. It enables easy comparison between your samples and provides graphical representations of many data.
