Plastics industry

Fortum is a supplier of recycled raw materials and a partner in the management of all material flows. By using recycled raw materials and increasing material efficiency, sustainable profitability and cost savings are achieved.

Raw materials and solutions for material circulation for the plastics industry

Fortum has given strong input into serving the plastics industry and the development of plastic recycling. From 2016 Fortum's Plastics Refinery will handle different types of plastic films, hard packaging plastics, and agricultural plastics.

The recycled plastic supplied by Fortum is of uniform quality and its characteristics can be tailored to the needs of our plastics industry customers. Certified production and traceability, as well as constant product development make Fortum a strong partner.

Taking control of all material flows

Customer-specific planning and solutions in environmental management bring efficiency into the processes of the plastics industry. We want to be pioneers in developing a circular economy society in which valuable materials circulate as much as possible. We also offer a competitive route for the recycling of clean plastics: surplus plastic from production is crushed and granulated after which it is returned to the customer.

Fortum plans and produces service wholes for environmental management and material efficiency. Nearly all waste is utilised primarily as material and secondarily as energy. Fortum deals with collecting and processing hazardous waste, such as printing inks. Familiarity with environmental requirements and reporting systems are among our strengths.

Increasing material and resource efficiency improves the environmental friendliness and sustainable profitability of the activity while creating savings.
