Solidium could help turn cleantech into an export industry, says labour market boss

Jorma Malinen, the chairperson at Trade Union Pro, has urged Solidium to spur the growth of the cleantech sector. “Defining strategic anchor ownership is extremely important for the future operations of Solidium. This is an opportunity to create an entirely new export-oriented sector,” he comments in a press release. South-west Finland is currently considering between two alternative solutions to the problem of municipal waste: an outdated waste incinerator or a modern recycling facility. “It would be a bad decision to move the project forward purely on the basis of price competition. Solidium in the capacity of an anchor investor could instead help build a high-technology recycling facility that exportoriented industries could utilise as a reference to foreign buyers,” he says.
