Helsinki city considers innovative waste management solutions
MariMatic and MetroTaifun™ are helping Helsinki to find new, innovative waste management solutions.
The new Jätkäsaari residential area will be one of the most important urban development projects in the Finnish capital; its construction will start in 2009. When completed, the Jätkäsaari area will accommodate an estimated 16 000 residents and 6 000 jobs.
A pipeline-based system has been proposed as the waste collection solution in Jätkäsaari. Some of the main benefits of the MetroTaifun™ system are its environmental friendliness, the reduction of odours and emissions and an increased fire safety.
MetroTaifun ™ is the trademark of MariMatic Oy, expert in vacuum technology since 1983. The company provides waste and by-product handling and conveying solutions for a wide range of businesses globally. Over 600 vacuum conveying systems have been supplied to abattoirs, poultry processing plants, fish processing plants, vegetable processing plants, marine galleys, professional kitchens, and other industries.
