Well-planned and well-implemented investments strengthen industrial sector competitiveness. Sweco’s industry specialists have the full range of skills needed to drive projects from early studies to final realisation. The results are effective and resource-efficient production and a safe working environment.
Bioeconomy utilises renewable natural resources and materials. In Finland, the most central type of renewable natural resource is forest. Sweco has strong experience of the used industrial processes. Through our operations, Sweco facilitates the introduction of new bioeconomy technologies in energy and chemical industry as well as in forestry.
In traditional forest industry, this refers to production plants that do not utilise fossil fuels. New technologies include bark gasification, separation of lignin, digestion of wastewater sludge and further processing products of pulp production, such as nano-cellulose and rayon.
The top projects of the energy and chemical industry in the future will be more efficient utilisation of bio-based raw materials and biogas as well as the production processes of biofuels in bio-refineries. Sweco has extensive experience of confidential projects, many of which have already been implemented.
Innovativeness and the ability to utilise new technologies on a factory scale are typical to all bioeconomic projects. Sweco Industry has also accepted this challenge. A background of strong engineering competence and understanding of new technologies enable the implementation of profitable investment projects.
