Member introduction

The circular economy aims to keep products, components and materials in a continuous cycle instead of disposing of them. Valmet has a strong role in the circular economy by offering customers technology and services for converting renewable resources into sustainable products such as pulp, board and bioenergy.

Valmet’s solutions for pulp production are built on efficient and sustainable extraction of fibers from wood, while also focusing on chemical and energy recovery in the processes. This allows materials to circulate within customers’ production processes for longer and decreases the need for virgin resources.

Valmet is introducing new technologies to expand the use of bio-based materials and to introduce new bio-based products, decreasing the need for non-renewable materials. The possible cascades include e.g. bio-oil, bio-coal and extracted lignin, which can further be used for making bio-based chemicals and materials.
