Finland Holds a Trump Card for Mineral Processing and Growth in the Circular Economy

The growing demand for raw materials calls for investments in higher recyclability. The concentrations of new excavated minerals are lower than before and require more processing. This is why new and more efficient processing methods are needed, to increase material and energy efficiency as well. The Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) responds to these needs by investing in research and services that promote these areas. Finland holds a trump card – GTK Mintec, a research infrastructure in the mineral and circular economy sector.
