Fortum's recycling and waste solutions
The change for a cleaner world starts with leading by example. Our aim is to turn waste into new raw material whenever possible and keep it in circulation and utilised again and again. Fortum offers sustainable turnkey solutions of the highest quality to treat hazardous waste and ensure a safe final disposal. We also offer recycling services for plastics, metals and for example lithium-ion batteries.
All recycling and waste services
Mixed waste always contains some fractions which cannot be utilised as material. For these kinds of materials, including hazardous fractions, energy recovery is a safe and economically viable option. The energy gained is used for district heating for neighbouring municipalities and electricity for the national grid.
