Outotec Corporation develops and provides technology solutions for the sustainable use of Earth's natural resources. As the global leader in minerals and metals processing technology, Outotec has developed over decades several breakthrough technologies. Outotec's strong market position and technology leadership are based on the knowledge and experience derived from the operations of two major mining and metals companies: on the know-how based on the company's historic position as a part of the Outokumpu Group, particularly during the period when mining and metallurgy formed a key part of the operations of the Outokumpu Group and it spent substantial resources on creating related technologies, as well as on the know-how of former Lurgi Metallurgie GmbH, originating from Metallgesellschaft AG.
Outotec Research Centre in Pori, Finland, is one of two Outotec’s in-house research and product development centres and a part of Outotec (Finland) Oy. This facility focuses on mineral technology, metallurgical research (hydro/pyro­metal­lurgy and ferrous technology) and materials technology.

Erbicol SA was established in 1950 and employs now 40 persons. The core business is the manufacturing of extra hard materials like ruby for the watch industry, white sapphire disks, cylinders and pistons for micro-pumps, plates for scrapers, as well as micro-magnets in rare earth materials for the watch industry and other industries. For more than 10 years Erbicol is also active in the production of silicon infiltrated SiC foams.

Oy Woikoski AB is the oldest specialized gas producer and distributor in Finland, founded in a carbon-black factory in 1882. The family-owned company has evolved through various colourful and adventurous phases to become an important producer of various medical, technical, food-industry and specialty gases and a pioneer in the chemical industry. For example, Woikoski has started manufacturing hydrogen in Finland already in 1913.
All of Woikoski activities are based on gases, their production, development, applications and distribution to valued clients. Recently Woikoski has 13 own plants and offices, and over 170 agents throughout Finland. Woikoski exports products to other EU countries, especially Baltic states, and to Russia.

In January 2012 Woikoski opened the first hydrogen tanking station on the Polar Circle, in Rovaniemi, Lapland. It now allows Arctic Driving Center to start testing of hydrogen fuel cell cars in extreme conditions. Woikoski delivers hydrogen in 200 bar pressurised tanks and uses special compressing technology to support 700 bar tanking pressure.
