Mining, minerals and metals


We develop solutions that enable the industrial sector to switch to sustainable material sourcing.

Ensuring the supply of vital metals and minerals for the industrial sector requires the more efficient recovery of current metals and chemicals and the introduction of new manufacturing techniques and materials. At VTT, we develop closed-loop material cycles, more efficient processes, new raw materials and purpose-built materials.  With us, you harness our vast expertise and cutting-edge infrastructure to build the future of the mining industry.
