Technical cycles refine sidestreams from industry and soil materials

In the ECO3 area, we’re creating the conditions for extending the life cycle and reuse of technical materials. We’re looking for ways to use industrial by-products as efficiently as possible. After all, one ECO3 company’s by-product is another’s raw material.

Many companies benefit from the ECO3 area’s position in the hub of Tampere’s main roads. When side streams from industry and soil materials are collected from the surrounding areas, it’s easily transported for processing at nearby companies thanks to strong transport links.

ECO3-Terra is a area planned by the cities of Nokia and Tampere. The area will receive soil and waste materials such as demolition materials and ash that can be used in civil construction. Waste materials will be temporarily stored and processed for use in civil engineering.

Our goal is also to make technical cycles more efficient using new digital solutions. We’re looking for companies that use the by-products from consumer goods, trade, industry, agriculture and construction at an industrial scale.
