Circular economy responses to the need to efficiently utilize products and resources throughout their lifecycles. Valmet enables circular economy by offering its customers technology and services for converting renewable resources into sustainable products.
The current population is consuming more resources than the planet can provide, which has created an increasing need to find new ways to utilize products and resources throughout their lifecycles. This is enabled by the circular economy.
The key idea of the circular economy is to take as little new materials into use as possible, to use existing material flows for as long as possible, and to minimize the amount of waste.
Valmet has a strong role in the circular economy as an enabler by offering customers technology and services for converting renewable resources into sustainable results. For example, Valmet’s technologies are designed to use water and raw materials as efficiently as possible, our energy technologies enable the conversion of waste to energy, and the comprehensive services and automation help to utilize the technologies for decades.
Finally, almost 100% of Valmet-supplied paper machines and power boilers can be recycled.
