The Circular Raw Materials Hub is a nationally significant strategic infrastructure assessed by the Academy of Finland. It serves a wide range of stakeholders, such as the growing battery industry. Five million euros have been invested in the infrastructure of the joint laboratory, which will be inaugurated today. It will serve research and industry as well as educate future experts in the circular economy.
The Circular Raw Materials Research Infrastructure, RAMI – hosted by a consortium that includes Aalto University, the Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) and VTT Technical Research Centre – supports multidisciplinary research, high-level education and the needs of company users. This combined RAMI infrastructure, based on longstanding high-level scientific competence coupled with a dynamic academic atmosphere, consolidates Finland’s position as a global leader in the areas of circular economy related to natural, cutting-edge inorganic materials and sustainable energy solutions.
