Companies from China and Finland signed twelve deals on clean technology with a total contract value of approximately 1.5 billion euros. Out of these the share of immediate contracts was about 170 million euros and letters of intent about 1.3 billion euros. The agreements were signed at the Cleantech Finland China seminar held in Beijing on May 26th.
Chinese companies are particularly interested in Finnish energy efficiency, bioenergy, wind power, and water and waste management solutions. The immediate contracts are connected for instance to emissions quota contracts, straw pulp technology, ecological cities, and solutions for waste recycling.
