Description: 

Celignis (www.celignis.com) is a company that is leading the world in the analysis of biomass and in the development of solutions to make biomass processing technologies more competitive. Our work is contributing towards the transition away from using unsustainable fossil fuels to instead using sustainably-sourced biomass and wastes.

Currently Celignis employs a wide array of analytical and biomass processing equipment in its laboratory, however these items of equipment do not necessarily fully meet the custom requirements of our specialised analyses and tailored bioprocessing solutions.

This internship will involve the intern working with key members of the Celignis team on the design and manufacture of different items of equipment. Such items may include: customised flow-meters for use in evaluating samples for use in anaerobic digestion technologies, equipment for the automated fed-batch digestion of samples, customised equipment for enzymatic hydrolysis, and a variety of other processing and analysis tools.

The internship will also involve learning key digital skills related to the handling and processing of analytical and process data with the intern interacting with our IT and programming team.

We believe that the outputs of this internship will help in the development of technologies to improve the efficiencies and economics of bioecomomy technologies and processes, potentially helping to advance this sector in Ireland and around the world.

Please note that we are not able to provide any financial support for this internship.
