Co-financed by the Finnish Innovation Fund Sitra, the national Circular and Bio Economy Centre is located in Kemi.
The operation of the centre is based on the cooperation between the City of Kemi, Kemin Digipolis Oy and Lapland UAS.
Industrial companies operating in Northern Finland generate billions of euros in turnover every year, and industrial by-products in the Sea Lapland area alone amount to 1.4 million tonnes per year. Sea Lapland will be at the national forefront in developing the circular economy.
The location of the centre is also ideal for international cooperation. The northern regions of Sweden, Norway and Russia, with similar industrial activities, are located nearby.
