Nov 25, 2011 - Spanish fruit production and processing company Nufri plans to build a biomass plant in the city of Mollerussa, the province of Lleida, worth EUR 25 million (USD 33.1m).
The biomass facility will create 181 jobs and will save 57,120 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year, the industry director Xavier Argiles said yesterday.
The construction works are due to begin in the summer of 2012. The plant is envisaged to be put on stream 24 months after the start of the construction.
The construction will be entrusted to local builders, Nufri added.
