The technology brought cleaner air and new jobs to facture

Residents of Facture, a city in southwest France, have been breathing cleaner air since October 2010. A biomass-fired combined heat and power plant – which is one of Europe’s largest and represents Metso’s latest technology – was commissioned at the energy company Dalkia’s new biomass power plant, located at the local Smurfit Kappa paper mill. For Metso, a global engineering and technology company, this delivery was an excellent opportunity to demonstrate its ability to support its customers in combining business objectives and environmental targets.
