Exel Composites has joined Cleantech Finland, an organization promoting clean technology. Exel Composites’ membership supports the company’s target to develop lighter, more durable and energy efficient and thus more environmentally friendly products and solutions.

Cleantech Finland is a network of top cleantech companies and experts that brings cleantech solutions and expertise to companies and public-sector organizations that have environmental or energy-efficiency problems that need solving.

Composites decrease harmful environmental effects
Composite solutions that replace traditional materials decrease harmful environmental effects both directly and through value chain. The light weight and durability of composite products generate energy savings and diminished emissions e.g. in the transportation industry. Components delivered to water plants improve processes related to waste water treatment.

Development driven by sustainability and life-cycle thinking
“Sustainability and life-cycle thinking play a major role in the development of more environmentally friendly production methods. They also help our customers obtain more ecological solutions with our products. Cleantech Finland’s targets are in line with our strategy”, says Kari Loukola, SVP of Sales and Marketing.

”Composites are gaining ground in the automotive industry via cost savings as vehicles use less fuel thanks to lower weight. Corrosion resistance means less maintenance and less damage due to harsh weather conditions, which translates into longer life-cycle.”, says Mikko Lassila, Sales Development Manager.
