Clean energy, water and air are life-giving resources for which we at LUT University seek new solutions with our expertise in technology and business. We help society and businesses in their sustainable renewal.

Our experts in energy seek ways to support the transition to a carbon-neutral world, in all sectors of society and industry. We take a comprehensive approach to ensure clean air and positive climate impacts.

Our expertise in water purification meets complex water treatment needs. While ensuring clean water, we also discover raw materials from sidestreams, and help refine them into value.

To maximize our impact, we will make sure that a strong link to business research and renewal always exists. With our help, companies can reinvent themselves to grow sustainably and create value in a digital economy.
