Plastics industry

Fortum is a supplier of recycled raw materials and a partner in the management of all material flows. We utilise recycled raw materials to increase material efficiency and profitability in a sustainable way.

Raw materials and solutions

We drive the change for a cleaner world by serving the plastics industry and the development of plastic recycling. Since 2016, Fortum's Plastics Refinery handles different types of plastic films and hard packaging plastics.

The recycled plastic supplied by Fortum is of uniform quality and its characteristics can be tailored to the needs of our plastics industry customers. Certified production and traceability, as well as constant product development, make Fortum a strong partner in this transformative change.

Taking control of all material flows

Customer-specific planning and solutions in environmental management increase the efficiency of the plastics industry. We want to be pioneers in developing a circular economy society in which valuable materials circulate as much as possible. We also offer a competitive route for the recycling of clean plastics: surplus plastic from production is crushed and granulated after which it is returned to the customer.

Fortum offers environmental management and a complete material-efficiency service. Nearly all waste is primarily utilised as material and secondarily as energy. Fortum deals with collecting and processing hazardous waste, such as printing inks. We are specialised in environmental requirements and reporting systems.

Increasing material and resource efficiency improves the environmental friendliness and sustainable profitability of the given activity while yielding savings.

Fortum offers high quality recycled plastic of even quality which allows customers to improve their cost-effectiveness. Our strength is the ability to reliably deliver quantities required by industrial processes. We are a partner that aims far in product development.
