Towards carbon-neutrality – Metals producers and research organizations to develop solutions for reducing CO2 emissions
Leading metals producers in Finland together with domestic research organizations have launched a large 3-year research project with an aim to develop tehcnologies for CO2 mitigation in metals production. Metals production possesses greatest CO2 potential of all industries in Finland. Business Finland funds the project with almost 10 million Euros. The total budget of the project is 18 million Euros.
Nykyiset kaivokset eivät riitä vastaamaan metallien kysyntään uusiutuvan energian, kuten tuuli- ja aurinkoenergian, ja sähköisen liikenteen lisääntyessä. Symbiosis of Metals Production and Nature (SYMMET) -hankkeessa on pyritty löytämään kiertotalouden ratkaisuja kestävyysvajeeseen, jonka metallien jatkuvasti kasvava tarve aiheuttaa.
