Invitation to SYMMET results webinar on 26.11.2020

The production from current mines is not sufficient to fulfil the need for metals, especially when clean
energy, e.g. wind and solar, and electric vehicles are produced in growing amounts. SYMMET is trying
to find answers to the sustainability gap, which is the result of continuously increasing need for
metallic materials.

Symbiosis of metals production and nature aims to find ways to minimize waste
materials or residues formation in metallurgical processes, and to establish how best to utilize
secondary raw materials in existing metallurgical processes. It also wants to promote creation of
research based innovations and new business.

SYMMET gathers together a large consortium of metal producers, technology and service providers,
SMEs and research institutes active in the metals production ecosystem. The industrial partners of the
project are Boliden Harjavalta Oy, Boliden Kokkola Oy, Outokumpu Stainless Oy, Outotec (Finland)
Oy, Owatec Oy, SSAB Europe Oy, Tapojärvi Oy and Timegate Instruments Oy. Aalto University,
Lappeenranta University of Technology, University of Oulu and VTT Technical Research Centre of
Finland support consortium by high level scientific research. The total budget of the two year project is approximately €6.9 million.

Welcome to the seminar on Thursday 26th November at 8.30 – 12.15.
