Rantasalmi, in mid-Finland is the site of Finland’s first wood materials industrial park, with waste wood powering the electricity plant, and its excess heat warming the cluster of on site wood businesses.
These include Finland’s fourth largest log house manufacturer, carpenters, a transport company and a window and door frame factory, which by operating side-by-side, provide their waste wood and sawdust to the plant. For a description see this pdf
