With Accurate Data the Opportunities are Limitless...


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.

Our clients range from start-ups to multinationals and world-leading universities, spanning over 30 countries.



Our Ethos

"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

Our expertise extends far beyond analysis. We have in-depth understanding of the implications of composition and can design processes to fully valorise biomass.

Our Areas of Expertise


During his PhD Celignis founder Dan Hayes found that accurate understanding on the composition of feedstocks and process outputs was crucial to optimising processes to valorise biomass. He decided to launch Celignis to provide this compositional and process expertise to the sector.

Innovation is at the core of everything we do.
In the bioeconomy if you stand still you end up being left behind.
Celignis was born from pioneering research and our burning desire to innovate will never fade.



Our Projects


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.

PERFECOAT, a RIA project funded by the BBI JU, targets the development of novel sustainable coatings that will ultimately be available to the public. Celignis is responsible for the extraction and modification of polymers (xylan and chitosan) that will be used as binders in these coatings.

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.

We are proud of the knowledge, passion, and work ethic of our team. They have played key roles in the formulation, optimisation, and commercial evaluation of biomass valorisation processes in industry and academia.
