Resource efficient industry paves the way to progress
Resource efficiency will be the corner stone of competitiveness in all
industries. Materials and energy need to be saved, recycled and reused to a
much greater extent than they are today. We are looking forward to cost
efficiency, new competitive edge and cleaner production.
VTT is hosting together with Sitra (Finnish Innovation Fund) a webinar on
industrial material efficiency. In the current economic turmoil it is
increasingly important for the industry to wake up and see the potential in a
symbiotic approach to material use. In particular, the webinar hosts
discussion on the re-processing of waste and embedded valuables to viable raw
materials for industry and the related economic and technological hurdles.
the webinar, global and national companies and research organisations will
give their views and experiences on this highly topical theme.
