PARIS/LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is to award a contract to destroy around 150 tonnes of chemicals from Syria's chemical weapons programme to Veolia Environnement, two sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.
The chemicals will be processed at the French water and waste management firm's incineration plant at Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, England, the sources said, saying an announcement was due later on Thursday.
"This first contract will be for Veolia," said one of the sources.
