We deliver fully automated recycling solutions to the e-waste recycling sector that are affordable, safe, environmentally friendly and profitable.
6.5 million metric tonnes
of screens and monitors are added to the ever growing e-waste stream each year.
Traditional recycling activities (like shredding and manual disassembly) are not keeping pace with the global growth of e-waste, causing environmental, social and economic issues.
Our vision is that every used flat screen in the world becomes a valuable commodity rather than hazardous waste.
The e-scrap recycling industry is in urgent need of an efficient, low cost and safe FPD recycling process.
With this in mind we have developed fully automated, high through-put, FPD robotic recycling systems that are transforming recycling of flat screens and laptops into a profitable business line.
FPD Recycling is transforming the way end of life screens and laptops are processed by providing a solution that depollutes them in a safe, compliant and profitable manner.
We promote the circular economy by creating safe, sustainable and flexible automation solutions for all forms of difficult and hazardous e-waste.
FPD Recycling was established from the need to provide recyclers with a safe, efficient and profitable solution to deal with growing problem of hard to recycle e-waste.
Today, we are happy to see that thanks to our technologies, perception of e-waste is changing from environmental risk and disposal problem to a valuable resource of secondary raw materials.
Our first goal was to develop an automated process for recycling TVs, monitors and laptops – and since it needed to be safe, efficient and profitable, we brought robotics and Artificial Intelligence in to do the hard and dirty work.
Core team established
Recycling industry veterans Austin Ryan and Craig Thompson, engineering, AI, automation and software development experts – Paudy O’Brien and Gary Moloney and finance specialist Declan Lynch joined the forces to bring AI and robotics innovation to the recycling industry.
€1m Investment secured
First machine designed
Global partner secured
Applied to European Patent Office (EPO) for patents around FPD recycling process and our Artificial Intelligence solutions.
First machine built
CE Certification awarded
First machine shipped
Design upgrades included separating the machine into two – one for TVs & monitors and second for laptop processing. It resulted in making the machines more compact and improving processing times:
– from 60 devices (screens or laptops) per hour to 300 devices per hour (100 screens and 200 laptops).
First remote installation
Machine was installed for a client in Australia with remote support provided due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Sales team expanded
We extended our presence to US & Canada and Nordic region.
R&D team expanded
Research funding awarded
Government funding for further research into downstream materials
€8.2m in contracts secured
from clients in Europe and USA
6 machines in build
Six new improved design machines to be be operational in 2021.
Research project initiated
New research project on brominated flame retardants (BFRs) plastics separation was initiated in collaboration with University of Limerick.
Engineering team expanded
We received funding form the first pillar bank to deploy our cleantech solutions globally.
