$64 million Investment in San Pedro Sula's Trash?

Mexican business representatives from an unknown Spanish company have proposed taking over the management of city waste, using it to generate energy.

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Laprensa.hn reports that "The business delegation representing the company Actea - Solar, founded with Spanish capital, met with Mayor Juan Carlos Zuniga to express interest in evaluating the possibility of investing in Honduras to help solve the problems of waste management using landfills. "

"... The businessman Eliseo Virueña explained that Actea Solar is a Spanish engineering company which designs, builds, installs and operates plants that use urban and industrial waste to provide electricity, heat, gas, or liquid fuels such as biodiesel and ethanol. "

When searching the internet references of that Spanish company, only one news story can be found outlining the signing of an operations contract for the transfer of waste between a Peruvian municipality and Actea Solar Peru.
