Brazil's Ecopav group is expecting to see at least 40% revenue growth during 2011, the group's technical director, Christiane Dias Pereira, told BNamericas.
"A large part of the uptick will be due to opportunities in waste collection, recycling, and treatment before disposal," Pereira said in a recent interview.
Ecopav is currently seeing results from its recently created subsidiary Ecoservice, which aims to find innovative solutions for adding value to waste, according to the executive.
The company carries out production activities using waste as a raw material and transforms it into a substance that can be sold and reinserted into the production chain.
The Ecopav group comprises four companies: Ecopav, Ecoservice, Ecopavia and Loceq, operating in the areas of environmental sanitation, civil construction, road resurfacing and equipment rental.
