About FPD Recycling®
FPD Recycling® has developed a unique automated system (FPD PRO®), capable of disassembling flat panel displays – TVs, computer monitors and laptops – enabling efficient and cost effective recovery of the valuable fractions, while also eliminating the risk associated with toxic components in electronics.
‘Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resources needed to sustain current lifestyles’ – United Nations.
The global e-waste management market is expected to reach €100 billion by 2030 with c.600 million new FPDs being sold globally on an annual basis (240 million of which are sold in the US and Europe). 6.7 million tonnes of screen and monitor waste is generated every year and only small fraction of materials is recovered from it, leading to material waste and environmental issues.
Current e-waste treatment and recycling methods (i.e. manual disassembly, shredding, landfilling) are inefficient, not economical and pose health and environmental risk, as electronics contain toxic materials. The recycling industry is in need of innovative solutions to tackle the volume of the fastest growing waste stream in the world.
Innovation for sustainability
FPD Recycling® brings a long-waited innovation to the recycling industry, offering the first solution that is affordable, safe and profitable to the recyclers.
Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data Analytics are identified as a future of the recycling industry, greatly improving safety and efficiency of the recovery of secondary raw materials and parts for repair.
FPD PRO® tackles other important recycling issues such as:
- Labour: The cost of manually dismantling any screen is higher than the recoverable materials within (“fractions”) are worth, making the process uneconomical. There are health & safety risks of workers being exposed to toxic components.
- Legislation: The activities of the recycling industry are becoming more regulated globally, creating opportunities for technology-based solutions.
- Circular economy: Resources are becoming more scarce and consumers are demanding more environmentally sustainability solution from manufacturers.

Our EIIS Offer
Investment in Convertible Redeemable Preference Shares.
Minimum subscription amount €20,000 and maximum €250,000.
The EIIS funding will be deployed to fund the manufacture and installation of FPD PROs® for recyclers that have entered into a Customer Contract with the Company and hiring key staff.
Minimum of 4 years from the date of investment.
By restricting the manner in which the EIIS funding can be used, the Company should be in the best possible position to fund the buyback/redemption of the EIIS Shares after the minimum 4 year holding period has elapsed.
An individual paying the marginal rate of income tax can claim 40% tax relief in the year in which the investment is made.
This Investment offers higher rate taxpayers an opportunity to efficiently shelter a portion of their taxable income using EIIS relief.
The Investment has a planned exit date of 1 January 2027. The buy-out is capped at €1.28 per share, which is equivalent to an annual coupon of 7%.
If as projected, the Investment returns €1.28 for every €1.00 invested, it should generate a pre-tax return on investment (ROI) of 25% per annum for individual Investors (including the income tax saved based on current tax legislation) on the Qualifying Investor’s net initial investment, assuming the individual has sufficient taxable income at the marginal rate of tax.
An admission fee of 4% (inclusive of VAT) will be payable by Investors upon subscription for the Shares. This money will be used to defray investment set-up and running costs.
