Fluo is making the circular economy mainstream.

Fluo is a Finnish circular economy group that collects, processes, utilises and recycles materials and manufactures recycled products through its national circular economy network. We are the market leader in hard plastic recycling and a pioneer in the manufacture of recycled products.

Our name Fluo means "to flow" in Latin. Our mission is to make the circular economy mainstream by increasing the recycling rate of domestic raw material streams and manufacturing recycled products.

How we became Fluo

There has been a lot of waste since the first Fluo company was set up in 1962. Today, we are a group of six recycling companies employing over 120 people and serving more than 6,000 businesses and 35,000 households.

Discover the history of our group, which dates back to the 1960s.


The first Fluo company is set up

The year was 1962, when the first of the predecessors of the current units was founded. In fact, most of our companies have decades of experience in waste management and recycling.


Local recycling companies merge to form Ekokuljetus

Three environmental and waste management companies from Kokkola decided to join forces and form Ekokuljetus. The rest, as they say, is history.


Ekokuljetus Group is formed by the merger of local recycling companies

Ekokuljetus, Finells Transport and Pohjanmaan Hyötykäyttö Oy's Kokkkola business started to work together to form the Ekokuljetus Group.


Murskauskeskus and Ekoman merge to form Ekokuljetus

Our Group's material flows branched out further into Finland as Itä-Suomen Murskauskeskus and Ekoman joined our ranks.


Kesrec and FL Pipe merge with Ekokuljetus

We really started to shape the future of the circular economy when two of Finland's leading recycled plastic companies, Keskinen Recycling and FL Pipe, became part of the Ekokuljetus Group.


Fluo powers the circular economy

With our rapid growth, we also outgrew the former group name Ecotransport. Of course, ecology and transport are still part of our nature. But the single Fluo brand better represents who we are today and who we increasingly want to be in the future. A holistic circular economy group, whose stream is growing stronger and branching out across Finland.

Our mission

As its name suggests, Fluo aims to make the circular economy mainstream by increasing the recycling rate of domestic raw material streams and manufacturing recycled products.

More than 100 000 tonnes of recyclable materials pass through our group. Our carbon handprint is about ten times larger than our carbon footprint, i.e. the emissions we produce. The more successful we are in growing our business, the bigger our positive handprint will be.
