The objective of this research project was to develop a sustainable waste management concept for tourist areas in the Northern Periphery.
We focused on selected tourist centres in Finnish Lapland: Levi, Ylläs, Olos- and Pallastunturi as well as the Saariselkä. We mapped amounts and composition of wastes and technological solutions for the energy efficient utilization of these waste streams were evaluated. Small-scale, decentralized biorefinery solutions were the target of the research, for which we performed technical analyses and sustainability assessment
