It will have a considerable impact on reducing our future production costs as well as our carbon dioxide emissions. A modern technology for a modern ferrochrome facility, says Andries van Heerden CEO RBA.
- We are very pleased that RBA has made it clear at an early stage that they intend to buy and own the PWR BLOK's themselves. This will always be the most economical beneficial alternative for the customers and also grant them full ownership of any carbon tax reliefs, says Gunnar Larsson, CEO Swedish Stirling.
