Unlocking the Full Potential in Circular Minerals – From Tailings to Chemicals and Materials

Of all Finland’s annual side streams, the residues from the mining and processing industry form a significant share. It’s time to tap into the wasted value – but how can it be done in practice?

VTT, Geological Survey of Finland, University of Oulu and LUT University have joined forces to advance the circular economy of mineral side streams, and now you can participate in the first jointly run webinar on February 10. Sign up to get fresh insights on the current national status and future steps needed in the field:
