    ​We have a dual problem: resources are 
depleting and wastes are accumulating. 
VTT aims to develop novel, efficient pre-treatment and conversion methods for heterogenous waste streams. Introduction of these systems will reduce emission of greenhouse gases, and importantly provide a boost to local economy by generating jobs on regional level and in different branches 
of society.
    The target of VTT research is to accomplish this by knowing the properties of wide range of recovered heterogenous materials, creating and integrating technologies to utilise these material flows to new solutions and sustainable products to the markets, creating new value chains for Finnish industry, expanding VTT’s expertice in finding solutions for challenging approaches, and expanding the co-operation of VTT with industrial partners.
