Former Taoiseach, Castlebar based, Enda Kenny has been appointed as a non-executive director of Tipperary-based Envetec Sustainable Technologies Ltd, a start-up company focused on treating and eradicating biohazardous laboratory waste and material.

According to today’s Irish Times, Mr Kenny, who was Taoiseach from 2011 to 2017, is one of five recent appointments to the board of the cleantech business, which has raised €10 million in new funding to support its growth. Mr Kenny has secured a number of directorships since stepping down as taoiseach, including with Heneghan, the Ireland China Institute and Carbon Collect Ltd.

According to the company, its generations technology safely treats biohazardous waste and materials including plastics, glass, PPE, sharps containers and other general laboratory consumables on-site. The patented technology shreds and disinfects infectious waste and materials directly at the source, which can then be recycled.

It is designed to help laboratories begin phasing out unsustainable activities, including incineration, autoclaving, landfill and the public health risk associated with the transportation of biohazardous waste.
