Trade and service activities include many different kinds of fields from airports to harbours and shopping malls to business parks. Fortum's strength is that it offers its customers a comprehensive service concept with understanding for the different kinds of functions of commerce, legislation, and their changing requirements.
Many different kinds of energy waste are produced in connection with trade and services (paper, metal, glass, plastic) as well as biological and animal-derived by-product waste such as kitchen fats. Construction and demolition waste is also brought for processing, as well as sand, water, and dust from underground settling tanks. Other special areas are data protection waste, such as personal information classified as secret, personal information, and medical waste from medical clinics, such as hypodermic needles and medicines.
Fortum offers a service concept to properties in which all of the customer's needs are met at low cost and without difficulty: we take care of the right kind of waste collection and transport equipment and send the raw material to Fortum's own appropriate processing plants for further processing. We are not merely a waste flow transporter: through circular economy thinking we seek to understand the entire chain and to glean more efficiency from potential model solutions.
Fortum's professional skills can be seen in the strength in adopting various functions of trade. We are living in a changing world and we are responsible for seeing to it that the material flow is handled according to legislation and regulations. An important part of the service that we offer is informing our customers, training, and open reporting in which we give information on the amount of waste flows, prices, deliveries, and how materials have been utilised and refined for recycling use.
