50 jobs created by waste management firm

50 new jobs were pledged today for the Limerick area after a waste treatment company announced an investment in its city facility.

The Re3 Group says it will invest €15m in their plant located in the Galvone Industrial Estate, which uses a steam technology as an alternative landfills and incinerators.

The company already employs 20 people at the facility with a further 30 new jobs being created by this time next year.

The company is investing €15m in sustainable waste technology known as autoclaving, which uses steam technology to recycle up to 85% of domestic waste which currently goes to landfill.

Meanwhile officials at the plant have had to reassure residents in the surrounding area that the plant will not produce any toxic or harmful fumes following reports from householders in the rosbrien area of ‘bad smells’.

Professor Debbie Boyd, Chief Executive of the company said the smells were a consequence of the testing of the system saying that their odour control procedures are now in place and the problem has been dealt with.
