CPL Fuels Ireland is a leading distributor of solid fuels in Ireland. We recognise that when it comes to fuel, our customers need a product that not only delivers premium performance, but also represents great value.
CPL Fuels Ireland is part of the CPL Industries group, which has been delivering solid fuel for many years. The CPL Industries group has established itself as one of Europe’s leading smokeless solid fuel manufacturers and suppliers. CPL Fuels Ireland seek to offer a cost effective, more energy efficient, and greener alternative to traditional coal, and a fuel that people can rely on following the upcoming ban on smokeless coal. CPL has developed a range of solid fuels that are not only smokeless, but also contain a proportion of renewable biomass materials up to 50%, all whilst outperforming traditional coal. These smokeless fuels are approved to be burnt in any area with a ban on smoky coal, and also produce significantly lower CO₂ emissions. Some of the fuels from our Homefire range will also be eligible for carbon tax relief due to their high biomass content.
In June 2013 we announced our plans to build a new smokeless fuel production plant at the Port of Foynes, investing €22 million to bring the manufacturing of smokeless coal ovoids to County Limerick. We currently use a significant amount of imported biomass such as olive stone. The new Foynes production plant will employ a new proprietary technology which allows us to use a wider range of biomass than previously. Initial discussions have commenced with growers about how this need can be met by developing biomass production over the next few years in Ireland. With Ireland currently importing around 300,000 tonnes of smoky coal from Poland and Colombia, we hope to make a significant contribution to greater fuel security in Ireland.
