The pioneering technology of Irish company Cynar PLC, which turns end of life plastics into fuel, provides a profitable solution for ever-increasing volumes of waste plastic as well as a strategy to beat rising fuel costs.
Cynar’s base (Portlaoise, Ireland) is the world’s first commercial scale plastic to fuel plant. One ton of waste plastic generates 185 gallons of diesel, 53 gallons of gasoline and 26.5 gallons of kerosene. Cynar’s conversion technology produces diesel at a total cost of $1.50 per gallon. This enables partners to control their fuel costs by integrating the fuel output into their fleet requirements. The process can handle most waste plastics that are currently sent to landfill or incinerated.
Typical partners for the Cynar technology are waste operators who can use the diesel produced by the system to run their collection vehicles. At the end of 2010, Cynar signed a major deal with Sita UK (a subsidiary of Suez Environment) to build 10 plants.
The company are actively seeking partners in the US with the ability to supply up to 20 tons of end of life plastics daily. Plant location will be determined based on continuity of supply.

Ireland has a worldwide reputation as a successful location for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Almost 1,000 multinational corporations, in sectors including Life Sciences, ICT, Engineering and Financial Services, have chosen Ireland as their strategic European location.
Ireland is now also emerging as a significant location for investors in the Cleantech industry, largely due to natural resources advantages backed by a talented and skilled workforce, a thriving research and development environment, and pro-Cleantech government policies.
Ireland is committed to becoming a world leader in several Cleantech niche sectors within five years from today. Due to its strategic location between Europe and the Atlantic Ocean, Ireland has an abundance of natural renewable resources. Coupled with grid access to the UK and Europe, this puts Ireland in the ideal situation to become a leader in the Cleantech industry.
The Irish Government is firmly committed to developing the Clean Technology industry and positioning Ireland to become a world leader in this rapidly-growing sector. Clear policy targets have been set: 40% of all electricity generated from renewable sources by 2020, a 20% saving on current energy costs by 2020 and a penetration rate of 10% for electric vehicles by 2020.
Here are the top ten highlights of the Cleantech sector as it exists in Ireland today:
1. In March 2010 Ireland saw the establishment of IBM’s first Smarter Cities Technology Centre in Dublin where IBM will build a highly skilled and cross-disciplinary team to help cities around the world better understand, interconnect and manage their core operational systems such as transport, communication, water and energy. Dublin City will collaborate with IBM as a ‘Test bed’, positioning Dublin as a smarter city, embracing technology to stimulate economic activity and meeting the challenges of a globally competitive sustainable city for the future.
With today’s collaboration between Enterprise Ireland client, Offaly-based ATSR and Ohio’s Ferno Washington, Inc., managers of emergency service vehicle fleets can soon equip their vehicles with a powerful new communications control system that will improve fleet efficiencies and cut fuel costs. The multi-year deal is valued at $5 million.
Partnership brings fully integrated control systems technology to emergency service vehicles for the first time; solution increases fleet efficiency and reduces fuel costs
OFFALY, Ireland and WILMINGTON, Ohio, Dec. 6, 2010—Ireland’s ATSR Ltd. today signed a $5 million, multi-year partnership agreement with Ferno Washington, Inc., an Ohio-based provider of professional emergency, mortuary and healthcare products. ATSR designs and manufactures fully integrated communications and control systems for emergency vehicles [EMVs]. Ferno will market ATSR’s technology under its new ACETECH North America brand. A first-of-its-kind electronics technology for the EMV industry, the ACETECH solution increases vehicle efficiency, cuts fuel consumption, and gives fleet managers greater overall control of their fleets. The partnership marks ATSR’s United States market debut. The company is already well entrenched in Canada.
ACETECH’s control technology provides a major boost to the performance efficiency of ambulances and fire trucks. Up to now, these EMVs have relied on disparate control systems, each acting independently to fulfill key functions. There are control systems for safety, sirens, asset tracking, directions, equipment and many other functions. But there is no single control technology that can seamlessly connect the pieces and feed actionable information to EMS personnel on site or fleet managers back at headquarters. Idle time, for instance, represents a sizable portion of vehicle in-service time and drains considerably more fuel than necessary. Yet, today’s control technology can’t reliably monitor idle time at accident sites and safely shut off vehicle operation to conserve fuel.
ACETECH’s solution bridges the gap. In a sophisticated, customizable electronics package, fleet managers can access a much broader range of meaningful information in real time. This includes details like vehicle status, event status and duration, and other important data that can be leveraged to boost fleet efficiency and personnel productivity. Older vehicles can be easily retrofitted. (more…)

The rising importance of wave energy development to the US was displayed last Friday when Ireland’s Wavebob hosted a visit by Energy Secretary, Dr. Steven Chu.
Wavebob was a natural choice for Dr. Chu. The Enterprise Ireland-supported company recently received a grant of $2.4M from the US Department of Energy for ongoing technical development.
