Chemical weapons watchdog picks Ekokem, Veolia to destroy Syria's stockpile

AMSTERDAM, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Ekokem AB of Finland and Veolia of France have won contracts to destroy part of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile, the global watchdog OPCW said on Friday.

The Hague-based Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which is overseeing the destruction process, has earmarked up to 40 million euros ($55 million) for the commercial processing of 500 tonnes of industrial chemicals and millions of litres of toxic waste.
