Finnish healthy food group powers mill with oat flakes to curb emissions and save energy costs

Raisio Group says the installation of the new heating plant will not only make the site carbon-neutral but also reduce energy costs

Finnish healthy food group Raisio Group is building a new heating plant at a mill it owns in the town of Nokia, powered by oat flakes.

The firm says the installation of the new project will not only make the site carbon-neutral but also reduce energy costs - when side streams like oat husk are used in energy production, energy costs are reduced.

In addition, energy production utilising side streams as fuel, increases energy self-sufficiency and the facility is not dependent on changes in fuel prices.
