We want plastic to circulate for as long as it has value

Fortum Waste Solutions CIRCO® products are manufactured entirely of recycled plastic. The Fortum Waste Solutions Plastic Refinery at Riihimäki uses a state-of-the-art recycling technique that enables clean extraction of PE, PP and PET plastics separately even from mixed plastic wastes. Annually, this first plastic refinery in the Nordic countries processes approximately 20,000 tonnes of plastic waste collected from industry, commerce, agriculture and households.

Recycled plastic is a high-quality and environmentally friendly raw material, and products manufactured from it present a more ecological option for the consumers. Recycled plastic is a step toward the efficient utilisation of materials in the circular economy. Let plastic to circulate for as long as it has value.
