In Industry Summit 2019 it is possible to visit the Kiertokaari area in Oulu on the 15th of May. The strategic focus of Kiertokaari is to promote circular economy through their co-operation with competent partners while providing residents with high-quality municipal waste management services.
Kiertokaari provides citizens and customers with reliable high-quality municipal waste management services while securing the comfort of the surrounding area and the health of the residents. Waste management is carried out as part of the material and energy economy, ensuring efficient use of resources and responding to the challenges of global climate change.
A good example of circular economy is the biogas ecosystem in Kiertokaari. Biogas has been collected from the landfill and used in industrial processes for over 20 years. Kiertokaari produces all the heat and electricity for their operations with biogas. Since September 2017 it has been possible to use biogas as traffic fuel.
Rusko is an ideal location for testing and for circular economy pilot projects. Kiertokaari is currently looking forward to starting up more circular economy co-operation with new partners.
