EcoSairila is spearheaded by the Blue Economy Mikkeli centre of excellence, which focuses on the circular economy and digitalisation of the water supply. It provides companies with RDI and training services, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of a unique testing and piloting environment to develop their business activities.
Mikkeli’s strengths and investment in water expertise are recognised nationally and internationally. One example of this is the innovation ecosystem agreement that Mikkeli has signed with the Ministry of Employment and the Economy to develop a centre of excellence between 2021 and 2027.
A wastewater treatment and reclaimed water plant utilising the latest technology, a biogas plant and a wide range of research, development and testing environments form a comprehensive entity for developing new water businesses.
