GlasPort Bio is a biotechnology company with research laboratories and offices in Ireland and the UK. The key focus of GlasPort Bio is to maximise the efficiency of natural resources, deriving value streams from a variety of materials, often those deemed as waste.
Our technologies help to unlock ‘hidden’ commercial potential while allowing for a host of environmental benefits. We aim to play a key role in a fully integrated bio-based economy, allowing stakeholders transition to low carbon economies.
GlasPort Bio is built upon almost 15 years of research and development and has developed a range of innovative technologies for applications in multiple fields including agriculture, agri-food, green energy and biotechnology.
We are currently working on two projects: an ERA Net Smart Energy Systems (SES)/SEAI funding award (2019-2021) with our Italian partners KiRa Technologies using pig manure, and a €2.5 million EIC Accelerator funding award (2020-2022) to develop GasAbate N+ which acts on the microorganisms that cause gaseous emissions from stored slurry and manure.
