Circular Economy Finland
Finland is famous for its forests and thriving wood-based industries. There are lots of opportunities in the smart exploitation of waste and various biomasses.
THE FINNISH OFFERING
New bioeconomy business opportunities in Finland are based on the smart exploitation of biomasses and water resources, the development of technologies associated with this, and high added value products and services.
WASTE-TO-ENERGY & BIOENERGY
As the world's population keeps growing, it will need 45% more energy by 2030. Finland provides holistic solutions for the whole value chain ‒ from waste and biomass feedstock to energy conversion.
HIGH PERFORMANCE BUILDINGS
Challenges in construction and living need durable and high-quality solutions. Finnish companies will help you design, build, and operate smart high-performance buildings with greater energy efficiency, better indoor air quality, and higher levels of comfort.
