The system would offset an estimated 134,160t/y of CO2 emissions. *** And Latin America accounted for 30% of Spanish company Abengoa's first quarter revenue of 1.66bn euros (US$2.36bn), according to a presentation by CEO Manuel Sánchez. Latin America represented 38% of the group's 8.66bn-euro engineering and construction backlog at end-March. In the region, Abengoa is participating in transmission projects in Brazil and Peru, and cogeneration projects in Brazil and Mexico.
