MERI-PORI AREA AS A PIONEER IN THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Companies in the circular economy and energy sector in Meri-Pori area handle, among other things, ash from waste incineration plants, wood and biomass, as well as electrical, electronic and metal waste. Recycled products and recycled raw materials are produced for the needs of the metal, chemical and civil engineering industries. The area has become a significant hub for the industrial-scale recycling business, offering unique growth and location opportunities for a wide range of businesses.

PEITTOO RECYCLING PARK - OPERATING ENVIRONMENT FOR INDUSTRIAL BY-PRODUCTS

The massive Peittoo Recycling Park offers nearly 1,000 hectares of zoned land for the treatment, storage and disposal of industrial, construction and energy by-products. In addition, the area produces recycled raw materials and renewable energy. Several major energy, industrial and circular economy companies already operate in the recycling park. The proximity of the port, the extent of the area and vacant plots make Peittoo an attractive place for new and expanding businesses in the circular economy.

READY TO USE INRASTRUCTURE IN KAANAANKORPI INDUSTRIAL AREA

The Kaanaankorpi industrial area has excellent infrastructure for processing industrial by-products into metals, metal chemicals and various bioproducts. Diverse energy and environmental infrastructure, such as a gas, steam and biopower plant and a water treatment plant, enable cost-effective investments in production processes. The area also has its own branch terminal line for railway traffic. 

RECYCLED MATERIALS TO THE WORLD FROM THE PORTS OF PORI

The ports of Mäntyluoto and Tahkoluoto in Pori offer an excellent platform for the recycling business and the international export of recycled raw materials. The ports contain modern equipment for handling bulk products and heavy project cargoes. There are also rail and road connections designed for heavy traffic that support the port infrastructure, not forgetting the Tahkoluoto deep fairway (15.3 m). There is room for growth and development in the port areas of Pori.
