Mining Industry

We create innovative and sustainable solutions for the environmental and material management within the mining industry.

Sustainable solutions for the mining industry

Our services for the mining industry are tailored to each individual customer. We collaborate on the solutions and cover the entire lifecycle of the mining operations - all the way from planning the mine to its closure and aftercare. We work in environmental management in both operating and closed mines as well as on individual mine projects.

Our service packages include the planning and implementation of environmental construction and water treatment, for example. We offer effective solutions for the planning and construction of tailings and water reservoirs, water treatment and the further processing or utilisation of any generated hazardous substances.

Innovations for cost-efficiency

As a pioneer in the circular economy and recycling business, Fortum’s solutions utilise the material flows generated in the mines’ own as well as Fortum’s processes. This increases material efficiency and the profitability of operations. We are leading the quest for a cleaner world and we are continuously looking for ways to improve operations in different areas of the mining industry. New innovations are constantly being developed at Fortum’s research and development department.
