Research and development
Valmet’s mission is to convert renewable resources into sustainable results. The aim of our research and development work is to create new technologies, products and services that address customer needs and help respond to some of the most important global megatrends: enhancing the efficiency of raw materials, water and energy, promoting the use of renewable raw materials and reducing emissions.
Valmet launches around 100 new products onto the market every year. These products are often created in close cooperation with our customers or our network of leading universities and research institutes around the world.
Valmet’s 16 pilot facilities carry out both internal R&D and customer projects. Our pilot facilities enable us to decrease the time to market and reduce risks in commercializing new technologies. We offer our customers the opportunity to utilize Valmet’s pilot facilities to test new furnish or fuel, or to optimize their processes from the energy, raw material and water consumption point of view.
