Bioeconomy’s significance in Finland

Forest bioeconomy


  • Of our total land area, 80% is covered by forest, which is managed so that it produces significantly more wood than we currently use.

  • The forest-based industry is a Finnish pioneer in bioeconomy. It utilizes renewable natural resources while incorporating economic, social and ecological sustainability in its activities.

Teaming up to build a bioeconomic future

Teaming up to build a bioeconomic future

  • Cooperation and combination of technologies make Finland a true pioneer in bioeconomy.

  • Finland has strong expertise in forest, technology, construction, energy, chemistry as well as in food and health.

  • Together we have developed know-how, expertise, technologies and solutions that are not found anywhere else.

  • Renewable energy replaces fossil fuels and combats climate change.

  • Finland is a global pioneer in the co-production of electricity and heat. This makes it possible to use wood-based fuels extensively and energy-efficiently.

  • New technology to refine biomass into pyrolysis oil, bio-gas and bio-coal will significantly increase the options to utilize bio-energy.

  • Most of Finland’s renewable energy is forest based.

New food systems and decentralized solutions

New food systems and decentralized solutions

  • New business operations are created in the chemical and energy industries by utilizing closed cycles in food systems, bio-processed products and livestock production sidestreams as well as field biomasses.

  • Decentralized and regional operational models are being supplemented with local food production, regional energy self-sufficiency and vitality.

  • Finland possesses high-standard expertise in the development of functional foods.

  • Natural products produced in accordance with new consumer trends offer the bio-economy new business opportunities.
