From Barter Economy… via Fossil Economy… to Bio Economy!
According to estimates, by the year 2030, the new “circular economy” holds an annual growth potential of 1.5 – 2.5 billion euro for Finland alone. KINNO has launched BioValley programme in order to figure out what is the best way to get a sizeable piece of that pie.
In a circular economy, there’s inherent value in material flows and waste – but even more valuable are next-practices, such as innovative maintenance and reuse and remanufacturing of equipment. By optimising value circulation, we can maximise the volume of waste that will be put to good (re)use in the form of raw materials – or as a green energy source.
Locally, the strong forest cluster has been championing energy efficiency for decades, so there is a solid foundation to build on. KINNO stands ready to support the innovators and explorers of the brave new bio economy.
