To drive the green economy and the development of carbon negative technologies that convert agricultural and biomass waste into green energy and renewable products. Together we will make a difference!
To be one of the fastest-growing integrated clean energy production specialists driving carbon negative engineering, offering process design, installation & commissioning services to deliver systems that convert customer biomass waste streams into biochar, energy and value-added chemicals in a social, economic and environmentally responsible manner that is affordable to all.
The PyroGenesys PyroPower process turns waste biomass into a decentralized source of combined cooling, heat, power (CCHP) and value-added commodities e.g. Biochar smokeless fuel briquettes. The PyroPower CCHP concept is designed to handle a much wider range of feedstocks than the conventional gasifier technologies currently on the market. By processing high volumes of cheap, abundant waste biomass, PyroPower will be able to provide clean-carbon neutral cooling, heat & power at a very competitive unit cost per kWh. Get in touch to discuss a comercial trial to convert your waste into renewable cooling, heat, power and value-added commodities, using our PyroPower test-rig.
Simon Ighofose is a co-founder of PyroGenesys LTD. He has a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering for which he conducted extensive research into the production of value added chemicals from the catalytic fast pyrolysis of biomass.
Simon is an Associate Member of the Institute of Chemical Engineers and the co-inventor of the novel pyrolysis technology developed by PyroGenesys. He has commercial engineering experience in process design, installation and commissioning; and is a Prince2 certified project manager. Simon is a consortium builder and has previously led/reported to multi-stakeholder programme boards, having administered local authority grants. Simon’s ambition is to drive the adoption and growth of renewable technologies across the world.
The COO and co-founder of PyroGenesys LTD, Dr Joseph Eke has an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering and a master’s in Chemical Process Technology with polymer science. He is currently studying a PhD in chemical engineering.
His research is on pyrolysis of biogenic municipal waste, focusing on waste characterisation, methods of pre-treatment, and preparation of biogenic municipal waste for pyrolysis process. He also has a comprehensive knowledge of process modelling and simulation, process designing, commissioning, installation, data analysis and writing reports. Inaddition to the skills above, he has experience in producing Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), performing research and development to initiate innovative ideas for a range of projects.
Dr Muhammad Saghir is a Chemical engineer with specialisation in bioenergy technologies and is currently finishing his PhD at Aston University’s European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI).
He is a serial entrepreneur with 2 business start-ups specialising in biodiesel consultancy and manufacture. He has served as a Bioenergy Plant Manager for three years at the European Bioenergy Research Institute. He has a wide portfolio of skills including NEBOSH Certificate, Managing Safely (IOSH), HazOp analysis, ILM Leadership and Management certificate and most recently he is on course to be certified in Production Inventory Management (CPIM from APICS).
