Outokumpu VDM boasts decades of experience in the art of alloying. How can we use this experience to master the challenges of the future?
Some of the questions that arise in this context are about the ecologically adapted and sustainable utilization of the resources that are vital for the life of mankind on our Earth. How can drinking water supplies be secured? How quickly can we change over to more efficient and climate-friendly energy supplies?
The scientists and engineers at Outokumpu VDM can contribute towards solutions to questions like these. Components made from our materials have long been installed in, for example, seawater desalination plants which produce drinking water. And our materials will also find many applications in the power stations of the future. More efficient conventional power stations require materials that can resist high temperatures in a corrosive environment.
Outokumpu VDM will have to move forward prudently, and we are well positioned to do this. An extremely important factor here are our employees. They are finding answers today to questions that won’t be raised till tomorrow.
The materials we develop play their part in assuring that this Earth’s resources can continue to be utilized efficiently and sustainably in the future.
