New eco-friendly facility will produce AdBlue®, a product that reduces Nitrogen Oxide emissions from diesel engines

 23rd July 2014 – The Irish Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD opened Brockley Group’s new cleantech BlueCat AdBlue® facility in Dublin.  The Cleantech BlueCat facility in Blackchurch, Rathcoole, a division of the Brockley Group, houses a production unit for the environmental product, BlueCat AdBlue, as well as the company’s chemical division which services the pharmaceutical industry.

The BlueCat Production Plant is the only one of its kind in Ireland. R&D has resulted in a unique process which produces an improved quality of product.

Richard Bruton, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation said, “It is with great pleasure that I officially open this new BlueCat production facility. A division of the Brockley Group, this facility is a testament to a company that diversified and flourished in a difficult economic climate. It is through growth in small companies, like Brockley, that we will help secure the long term progress of the Irish economy.  As we have seen many times, it takes innovation and courage to take that pioneering step that will ensure Irish companies can make it on the international stage.”

The new BlueCat AdBlue® manufacturing facility contains a brand new production process developed by Brockley with Enterprise Ireland’s support, which is more efficient and cleaner than other plants around the world.

Hugh O’Donnell, chairman of Brockley Group Ltd said, “Today is a really exciting day for the Brockley group. Our product, BlueCat AdBlue®, is aimed at the domestic and export markets and will compliment and strengthen our existing businesses. We are particularly proud of the new production process.”

Tom Kelly, Enterprise Ireland Manager, Manufacturing and Competitiveness, said: “Brockley Limited, a small Irish company, has emerged from the downturn with two new product offerings. This is as result of their commitment to innovation and the investment they have made and are making in R&D. It has enabled them to become an exporter with an offer relevant to a vast market and provides a platform for future growth. We are particularly pleased to see that the new technologies were developed through collaboration with Irish researchers. We would like to see more small Irish companies follow Brockley’s example.”

The new plant will assist in helping Ireland meet its European NOx targets.
