Around 70 companies contacted LEC's Enterprise and Business Partnerships Team at the UK's largest Environmental Technology exhibition - ET 2006 - held at the NEC, Birmingham.
It is the first year that LEC has exhibited at the event which is attended by companies such as ABB, Corus, Network Rail, N-Power, British Gypsum and Robert McBride.
