Opcon unit gets EUR-1.7m order for German waste-to-energy project
Dec 6, 2011 - Swedish industrial technology group Opcon AB (STO:OPCO) said Monday that its unit Saxlund International GmbH had secured a SEK-15-million (USD 2.2m/EUR 1.7m) order from the German city of Stuttgart for a waste-to-energy project.
Under the contract, Saxlund is to expand, on a turn-key basis, the waste-to-energy installation at Stuttgart's wastewater treatment plant. It will increase the plant's capacity to process sewage sludge from other such facilities in the area. After drying, the sludge is to be turned into biofuel for the generation of renewable electricity and heat.
