Additional funding for GTK Mintec is proposed in the Government´s supplementary budget

Additional funding is proposed for the Geological Survey of Finland in the Government´s supplementary budget to be used for the development of the GTK Mintec pilot plant complex.

The proposed additional funding is an excellent contribution to the implementation of GTK’s strategy. GTK’s goal is to renew and develop GTK Mintec’s digital laboratory and pilot plant complex serving domestic and international business and research during 2020–2025. The goal is to be the world’s leading pilot and research platform for circular economy and mineral processing.

GTK Mintec’s pilot plant and research laboratories specialize in serving e.g. the mining, metals and chemical industries, as well as the circular economy.

The Government’s fourth supplementary budget proposal is scheduled to be submitted to Parliament on Friday 5 June.
