Valmet in Circular Economy

  1. 1. Valmet in circular economy
  2. 2. Contents  Circular economy in brief  Valmet’s position in circular economy  How Valmet applies circular economy  Enabling circular economy for customers  Driving circular economy in own operations 13 June, 2017 © Valmet | Circular economy2
  3. 3. Circular economy in brief From linear to circular chains  A circular economy aims to keep products, components and materials in a continuing cycle instead of disposal.  Waste is minimized or eliminated for example through using side streams in other applications, processes or even industries.  Circular economy creates new business potential across industries through more efficient use of material flows. 13 June, 2017 © Valmet | Circular economy3 Waste Linear economy Circular economy Production Distribution Consump tion Re-use, repair, recycle Waste menagement, resource recovery Consumption Distribution Production Resource extraction
  4. 4. 13 June, 2017 © Valmet | Circular economy4 Valmet’s mission is to convert renewable resources into sustainable results Circular economy is inbuilt in Valmet’s solutions
  5. 5. Valmet’s solutions enable its customers to apply circular economy 13 June, 2017 © Valmet | Circular economy5 Utilization of renewable raw materials by customer Process technology and services provided by Valmet
  6. 6. We apply circular economy in Valmet’s own and customer operations in different ways 13 June, 2017 © Valmet | Circular economy 6 Resource efficiency Refers to the efficient use of resources, so that the amount of recources (materials, energy, water, chemicals) needed to produce the products can be reduced. Closed cycles Refers to material flows within one production unit/organization/industry aiming at creating closed loop systems with no waste. Longer circulation Refers to cycles where materials last longer, e.g. their lifecycles are extended, through e.g. more efficient recycling. Cascaded use across industries Refers to material flows cascading from one value chain/industry to another e.g. by using sidestreams from one value chain/industry as inputs into another industry.
  7. 7.
