The programme of the third day included visits to Finnish Sykli Environmental College, HSY Vantaa Sorting Station and Novago Business Development at Lohja.

One of the participants was Marta Sokolowska-Sluszniak from Reco Fibre.
“Why did you decide to participate in the program?
I am interested in Textile waste recycling practices and would like to see Waste to energy plant and a sorting station.
What has been the most valuable so far?
What I liked the most in our exchange is how we can wider our thinking and get to some reflections on how to do on daily basis”, says Marta Sokołowska-Słuszniak from Reco Fibre company from Poznan Science and Technology park Waste-Klaster from Poland.
What are your further expectations of participating in the ClusterXChange program?
I am hoping for further meetings and the materials to be shared between the participants.
