CPL Fuels is to create 142 new jobs in Limerick by 2015 as part of a €20 million investment in the county.

The company, which is one of the biggest manufacturers of smokeless fuels in Europe, plans to build a new bio-fuels plant at the Port of Foynes.

The company is capitalising on the intention by politicians in Dublin and Belfast to ban smoky coal by 2016.
