Welcome to GlasPort Bio

GlasPort Bio is a biotechnology company based in Galway, Ireland where it has its research laboratories and offices. 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 over 10 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 thrilled to have been awarded an ERA Net Smart Energy Systems (SES) funding award for 2019-2021 with our Italian partners KiRa Technologies. Check out our Twitter page:
