Kronospan Bulgaria to invest 5 mln euro in eco upgrade

Kronospan Bulgaria, the Burgas-based producer of chipboard products, said it will spend 5 mln euro to install a device for the wet filtration of aromatic hydrocarbon and dust particles.

Work on the project is set to get underway in mid-April.

The device, the first of its type in Southeastern Europe, will align the Kronospan production to the relevant EU standards for harmful gas emissions in the ambient air due to take effect January 1, 2009.

The 60 m stack of the filter installation will release only steam into the atmosphere.
