FCC Environmental Services, an affiliate of Grupo FCC in the United States, has reached an agreement with the City of Houston, Texas to manage the disposal of biosolids and sludge produced at wastewater treatment facilities in the city and surrounding counties.

The contract will provide service to over two million people residing in this Texan city and surrounding areas. In order to provide these services the company will rely upon a fleet of 20 trucks and 40 trailers with cisterns that in turn will handle between 25,000 and 45,000 tons of biosolids annually produced in the city during the next five years.

Houston is the fourth largest population center in the United States and the world’s biggest hub for oil exploration, energy, medicine and aerospace.

Grupo FCC’s business lines and environmental activities in the United States, such as the collection, recycling and treatment of municipal solid waste, industrial waste management, waste treatment from oil & gas exploration and production, ground decontamination and other environmental services, today come under the umbrella of FCC Environmental Services. This division has won the public bidding contest from the City of Houston.

Under this new corporate entity, Grupo FCC will now manage its environmental businesses in the United States where it provides services for waste management and industrial recycling.
