Synertec will use the money to support its balance sheet and expand its portfolio of environmental, social and governance (ESG)-focused technology for the energy sector. The funds will also be used to grow its portfolio of engineering solutions with its blue-chip customer base.

Chair Dennis Lin was encouraged by the capital raise.

"Our successful capital raise will help us to continue to deliver on our strategy for targeted, diversified growth led by a stable of energy-focused, environmentally friendly technologies which we are developing with our specialist engineering team and industry partners," Mr Lin said. "I thank all investors for their strong and loyal support of Synertec."

Taylor Collison and PAC Partners acted as joint lead managers to the placement and will be paid a management fee of two per cent, or $143,000, and a selling fee of four per cent, being $286,000.

Subject to shareholder approval, they'll be issued 10 million unlisted options with an exercise price of 20 cents and a three-year expiry date from when they were issued.

Company shares ended the day trading flat at 11 cents.
