The eight-acre site in the Invest NI Carnbane Business Park will accommodate a number of operations including the manufacture of solid recovered fuel (SRF), making products from dry recyclables, a garage, and an engineering workshop.

A research and development unit will be located as well as a four-storey office block and new headquarters for the Re-Gen Group comprising Re-Gen Waste, Re-Gen Robotics and Connex Offsite.

Joseph Doherty, Managing Director at Re-Gen, says, “This is an exciting development for the Re-Gen Group.

“We consulted widely on our plans to allow the community to have their say and our design team has taken their comments on board in developing the proposals for the site.

“This has been a very constructive process,” he continues.

“Employing special mechanical manufacturing processes, we will be producing SRF as a fossil fuel replacement on the site.

“We are progressing R&D trials and we will also develop products from dry recyclable material such as paper, plastic and glass on the site.”

Materials placed by householders in their blue, green and black bins are valuable resources to Re-Gen and the company has become an industry leader in developing the market for aluminium, glass, paper, cardboard, plastics and steel.

“We have a dedicated business development team working with Councils across Great Britain and Ireland to process their recycling materials,” he explains.

“Recycling resources are important and we are committed to developing the circular economy of paper, card, plastic and glass.

“We will continue to work with manufacturers and outlets in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and Great Britain.

“Our focus is on innovation and developing manufacturing facilities that close the recycling loop, create jobs at home and ultimately boost the Northern Ireland economy.

The project will secure the company’s 300 jobs in Newry and County Armagh.
