Development of the quality and environmental management system
In the Remat project, we have collaborated with Savonia University of Applied Sciences by commissioning theses in creation of quality systems ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Thank you for your cooperation to both thesis workers and teachers for their guidance. The development of the quality and environmental management system will continue in accordance with the principles of continuous development and to ensure the high-quality operation of Wimao’s recycling facilities.
The first euro pallets are produced.
Wimao’s first ECO-FRIENLY PALLETs were produced with the new Remat manufacturing process. Testing the line and product development work will continue during 2021. The main raw material of these pallets at the Riihimäki plant is bale plastics supplied by Salpakierto Oy from Kujala waste centre. These bales are largely moistened with various light film plastics, and they also contain some label paper fibers.
Crushing line installed and commissioned
Remat project is now progressing rapidly. The first equipment installation and commissioning have been completed. A crushing line was installed and commissioned at Riihimäki plant during February 11-17, 2021. Equipment installations will continue in the coming weeks, so there is now a lot of in-house and external installation staff moving around the plant.

Greenhouse gas emissions need to be reduced significantly over the course of the next 30 years.
The innovative technology used by Wimao will help to reduce the amount of Co2 emissions traditionally caused by incineration, which is the standard process used to deal with materials that are ordinarily considered waste. By extending the life cycle of these materials, Wimao techology is directly contributing to a reduction in Co2 emissions. This technology can be utilized around the world, it has the potential to change global industries
