UK-based waste-to-energy technology company Cynar has awarded
an $11 million contract to Rockwell Automation to design
and build a new end-of-life, plastic-to-fuel conversion
plant in Bristol, UK.
The plant is for SITA UK Ltd., a Cynar customer and partner
in the development, project officials said.
Cynar says it has developed a technology that converts end-of-life
plastics into fuel.
Our technology represents a unique and profitable way
to significantly decrease the amount of end-of-life plastics
that are disposed of in landfills and incinerators, said
Michael Murray, Cynar CEO and chairman.
Rockwell Automation strengthens our technology by
