EcoSairila – the environmental business centre

EcoSairila is where success is made.

Companies can start manufacturing and benefit from the area’s strengths: materials, nutrients, reclaimed water, targeted environmental and business services, an environmental data platform that facilitates permit procedures and compliance monitoring, and plots of land suitable for industrial activity.

New things are being created in EcoSairila.

EcoSairila offers a full-service innovation ecosystem for companies that settle in the area to develop something new. Companies may engage in development work exclusively or alongside their production activities. Companies in EcoSairila have access to a modern, diverse RDI infrastructure to support business activity and enable growth. The area offers RDI services and strong local, national and international networks of companies and RDI actors. EcoSairila offers robust support for the development and commercialisation of new products and services.

EcoSairila also serves the area’s residents and companies, providing a wide range of circular economy and waste management services. The area includes Kieppi, a reception and sorting centre for small importers, which provides waste management services and also accepts donations of products suitable for reuse, such as furniture and home electronics.

Places to succeed in Mikkeli

We offer tailored location options, versatile material flows, industrial symbiosis and synergies, modern infrastructure, and targeted, cost-efficient services.

The EcoSairila area and its actors form a hub of biological and technical material flows arising in the Mikkeli region and directed here from further afield. A wastewater treatment plant utilising the most advanced purification technology in Europe, a modern, diverse waste management centre, and a biogas plant offer business opportunities and synergies with other companies and actors located in the area.
