Case study

Ulster University collaboration - researching the energy solutions of the future

We have a global portfolio of research and development projects. We are particularly focused on the area of novel bio-based transformation processes for the production of bioLPG and other biogases from renewable sources of feedstock. In the past two years, we have been collaborating with Ulster University in Northern Ireland on a project to produce biogenic propane.

The project focuses on investigating how bacteria could produce renewable propane via a process similar to fermentation, which is precise, detailed work that requires clean labs and a steady hand.
