BiOrbic’s research programme focuses on three critical pillars of the bioeconomy through fundamental research platforms and collaborative projects with industry.  These pillars are Sustainability, Selective separation and Conversion.

BiOrbic’s technology platform’s research investigates the use of novel materials and processes to achieve separation of heterogenous mixtures to produce desired products or building blocks for conversion by synthetic or biological catalysts.

Our sustainability platform research examines multiple potential scenarios for the future bioeconomy in Ireland through stakeholder engagement, life cycle thinking, and socio- economic analysis. This will help us to understand potential futures for the Irish and wider bioeconomy and to inform policy development.
