Professor Martin Tangney OBE

Committee Member

Professor Martin Tangney is a key international figure in the renewable energy sector, informing the policy debate around the world.  Martin made global news headlines for his process for producing biobutanol, as a sustainable advanced biofuel (a direct replacement for petrol), from the by-products of Scotland’s crucial malt Whisky industry – not only providing a sustainable disposal route for the by-products of one of Scotland’s largest industries, but also integrating renewable energy production with environmental sustainability and carbon reduction.  His innovation has been equally applauded by NGOs, industry leaders and international Government leaders alike and he has focused worldwide media attention onto research and innovation in Scotland.

Martin is a recipient of the highly prestigious Institute for Chemical Engineers International Award of “Innovator of the Year” for his process – an innovation he is a now commercialising as the Founder and President of the internationally acclaimed Celtic Renewables Ltd.  Martin was named the Scottish Enterprise Entrepreneur of the year for 2015, the year in which he was recognised at the EU Parliament for founding the “Most Innovative Biotech SME in Europe”.

In recognition of his services to engineering and energy industries, Professor Tangney was awarded an honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) by the Queen, in the 2018 new year's list.
