MetGen’s Matti Heikkilä & Spinverse’s Laura Koponen on Finnish national tv Huomenta Suomi: wood to replace oil

23 May 2018

MetGen’s CTO, Matti Heikkilä, and Laura Koponen, Managing Director of Spinverse were on Finnish national tv, Huomenta Suomi, discussing the grand vision: wood to replace oil. In practice wood will be used to produced products, which are currently made from oil, starting with packaging materials. Moreover, the SWEETWOODS project, a consortium of nice European companies,  has received 21M€  of EU-funding with the aim of producing wood-based biomaterials for the first time on an industrial scale. These wood-based materials can be used to replace plastic in various everyday applications.

Watch the interview (in Finnish) and hear in detail what Matti and Laura have to say on the topic:
