Analysis and research

Analysis and research

Our unique Research Centre in Lahti, Finland, also serves our customers and partners. We offer reliable analysing services, and we are always open to new research projects and collaboration.

We take some 600 samples of recycled material annually. Thousands of analysis of these samples are conducted every year.

Our services

Reliable analysing services

In order to sort recycling materials as accurately as possible, it is extremely important to identify them. When a visual assessment is not sufficient or it is impossible, we analyse the materials in our testing laboratory.

Our Research Centre is accredited by Finnish Accreditation Service (FINAS) and meets the requirements of the standard SFS-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2017 regarding fuel testing. In addition to our own needs, accreditation enables providing fuel analysis services to our customers.

While the accreditation is admitted for recycled fuels, all our operations are certainly at a similar level, and our customers can be confident that the laboratory work is always handled professionally.

Kuusakoski's accreditation number is T353. Anyone can review the accreditation at FINAS's website.

Collaboration with various stakeholders

We collaborate extensively with various research institutes and universities. The benefits of the research collaboration are clear. Collaboration with stakeholders, customers, various actors in the value chain, and experts from the scientific world provide a broad perspective on research topics. Together, we develop and learn from our operating environment.

Collaboration is typically carried out in the joint projects, where various actors in the field and the scientific world work on a common theme, problem, or development opportunity.
