We have lots of new innovations to announce for the New Year. Some of these we have been working on in the background for some time now and some of which will be new innovations.
As a start-up it is hard to justify setting aside a budget for research, but there is help at hand. Enterprise Ireland runs a scheme and we were lucky enough to have recently received our Innovation Voucher. This gives us a budget of €5000 to spend working with a knowledge partner such as one of the third level institutions. We have been in contact with a knowledge provider and are looking forward to the New Year and exciting new apps.
My final year project was based on a Biogas plant for a dairy farm.
During my presentation I did however get a laugh when I made the statement that outputs depended very much on the quality of the input.
I have recently discovered Prezi, a system of compiling presentations and have discovered one centred around Biogas. I thought I might share the link here. http://prezi.com/nq67ujpgsr68/
