Promoting the circular economy for the benefit of our environment
The Kujala Waste Centre in Lahti takes in waste from communities and production facilities for interim storage, handling, reclamation, transfer and final disposal. The Kujala Waste Centre is Salpakierto Oy’s main site and the only location where it processes waste. Its operations have been granted an environmental permit.
Completed in 2001, the site covers 70 hectares in total. The treatment centre receives approximately 200,000 tonnes of waste each year. Municipal waste accounts for approximately 85,000 tonnes of this. Of the waste received by the centre, almost 100% is utilised.
In addition, the site is home to Salpamaa Ltd’s soil and stone reception, a soil processing site, LABIO Ltd’s biogas and composting plant, Tarpaper Recycling Finland Ltd’s roofing felt processing facility, Gasum Ltd’s biogas production and upgrading facility, and NCC Industry Ltd’s asphalt plant.
