Deputy Lowry TD Welcomes News On Lisheen Site.

Independent Deputy Michael Lowry has confirmed that EU Commissioner Phil Hogan will today formally announce the sanction and funding for a revolutionary bio-economy research project, led by Glanbia Ireland.

This exciting development will be based at the former Lisheen Mine site which has been designated as a green energy hub.

This project has huge prospects for full time employment and it is conservatively estimated that it has the potential to create 300 permanent jobs. The initial site preparation and construction phase of the development will employ both directly and indirectly; up to 160 people.

The project will involve the development of a new bio-refinery and will use technology which has been developed by Glanbia Ireland.

When completed the bio-refinery will help in tackling the current environmental crisis created by waste plastic across the country and the world.

Deputy Lowry stated, “I am pleased to have made my contribution to ensure that this key development would be located at the former Lisheen Mine site, and I compliment all the agencies involved in the partnership which will deliver this significant bio-refinery project.
I wish to thank Commissioner Phil Hogan and Minister Heather Humphreys for their support, cooperation and assistance throughout this complex and lengthy process”
