Fortum Recycling&Waste provides recycling and material efficiency services, environmental management and hazardous waste treatment in the Nordics.
We at Fortum believe that all carbon belongs in circulation. This means that also emissions are turned into new raw materials. To do this at scale, we need to rethink CO2 in recycling.
Fortum’s Waste to Materials concept captures CO2 emissions from waste incineration and turns them into materials. This offers a solution for the decarbonisation of waste treatment at hundreds of plants in Europe alone. It also secures a valuable feedstock for new products. Together we can ensure the sustainable use of resources and recycle carbon from waste.
