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... The BIOrescue project is focused on developing technologies to convert spent mushroom compost, a problematic waste of the mushroom industry, to high value products. Within the project Celignis is undertaking a compositional profiling study of the feedstocks and developing rapid analysis models for these and process outputs.
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... Celignis is the sole partner in STEAME, a project funded by the Irish Research Council and focused on the development of technologies to make anaerobic digestion more financially viable in Ireland.
Further info... The focus of ENABLING is on supporting the spreading of best practices and innovation in the provision of biomass for the Bio-Based Industry (BBI). 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.
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.
Feeds on data. Has developed algorithms to greatly improve the accuracy of our rapid analysis models and is responsible for the deployment of these globally.
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.
