Texas has invested in 53 projects with Austrian companies since 2003. Until the year 2020,the US state aims to raise its rate of renewable energies up to 15 percent. Some of the technology for wind and solar power houses will come from Austria.

"Currently, 20 Austrian companies, among them industry giants like Voest Alpine, Andritz, or Boehler, have branches in Texas", confirms Rudolf Thaler, the responsible Austrian Trade Commissioner.

The latest project went to ALPLA, creator of plastic packaging solutions. The company plans to supply bottles to Sunny Delight Beverages Co. as part of a $70 million project to purchase and reopen a plant in Sherman Texas. (BS/DR)
