International expansion

Present strategies are clearly focused towards expansion of international business, having achieved important milestones with its entry in European markets such as those of France, Portugal, Latvia, and Russia, and in the United States. Significant successes are also expected in the short run in Asia and Latin America.

The growing commitment of central European countries since the year 2000 to this type of biofuel –and recently in thermal power plants– favors PRODESA, which already holds 56% of the national market.

The first solid biofuel plant built in Spain by PRODESA Medioambiente was constructed in 2006; the first plant constructed outside of Spain in 2008 was a plant in Portugal with a production capacity of 85,000 ton/year. This major step was followed by the construction of projects executed in France and Latvia. PRODESA has established itself as the benchmark company in this sector in Spain and one of the most important in Europe. Its affiliate in the United States is already making its way in the North American market.
