UN sustainability Goal 12:Responsible consumption and production

We develop new processes and products where waste streams and underutilized nature resources are used as raw materials for new value-added products, thereby supporting UN sustainability subgoals 12.2 and 12.5:

UN subgoal 12.2: “By 2030, achieve the sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.”

UN subgoal 12.5: “By 2030, substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, recycling and reuse.”

UN subgoal 12.2
UN subgoal 12.5

Examples of projects at RISE PFI supporting UN sustainability goals 12.2 and 12.5 are given below:

Recycling of wood

Recycling of demolition wood at Retura IR


Biobased manganese ore sintering process


Recycling of raw material from bio-based industry


Upgrading contaminated organic waste feedstocks by pyrolysis
