The article reports on the decision of U.S.-based Velsicol Chemical to start up an anaerobic, post-production water treatment facility at its Velsicol Eesti factory in Kohtla-Jarve, Estonia. A technology from Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies is being used in the facility and was installed by local firm Jarve Biopuhastus. More than $2.7 million was invested by Velsicol in the anaerobic system, which converts organic compounds into energy-rich bio-gas with 90% efficiency
