VTT has been involved in peat research since 1981. Between 1981 and 1987, the major target was to solve the main problems in peat production. During 1988-1992 VTT co-ordinated the national OPTIMITURVE research programme, aimed at doubling the peat yield per hectare. Throughout the years 1993-1998, peat research is being done within the national BIOENERGY programme, the target being to decrease production costs. In addition to public research programme, VTT Energy is participating in R&D work in co-operation with peat producers and machine manufacturers, for example, Vapo, Turveruukki and Suokone.
