Vapo is on a journey of renewal.
The new Vapo will serve its customers even more intelligently and comprehensively, making use of local expertise. Vapo is boldly looking for opportunities in the global markets and responding to the needs of a changing world by delivering environmentally sustainable solutions.
Vapo is a leading supplier and developer of bioenergy in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. Vapo produces energy responsibly from sources including peat and wood. The company’s services also include various comprehensive energy solutions as well as related digital services and environmental business solutions. Vapo is an important part of the local energy infrastructure in all of its markets.
Our long history in Finland allows us to genuinely understand our operating environment and partners as well as the end user. We want to evolve constantly, and the trust we have in our own expertise enables us to also pursue new possibilities.
Utilising our strong expertise in raw materials, we are able to produce materials for the future out of peat. Vapo Carbons, which produces technical carbon for industrial use, is an example of our efforts in development. Our innovative solutions meet local needs directly, while also creating room for growth on a national as well as international level.

We are a rapidly transforming bioeconomy and energy company. Renewal is not only our passion, it is also vital for our future. Combined with our highly competent people, our expertise in domestic raw materials and the energy sector create a strong foundation for the energy business and the development of our new bioeconomy businesses. We operate in Finland, Sweden and Estonia.
The next-generation Vapo is an intelligent and agile operator that leverages the opportunities presented by state-of-the-art technology. Digital solutions enable flexible service that takes each individual customer’s needs into consideration. One of our new digital solutions is our power plant operations centre in the Tikkurila district of Vantaa, Finland. Connecting a power plant to Vapo’s modern monitoring and control network will increase the productivity and reliability of the customer’s energy production operations.
Vapo’s goal is to be the world’s leading expert on the local energy value chain. We provide our customers with local and domestic fuels, electricity, heating and related added value services. With decades of experience in fuel production and a high level of expertise in energy production, we are a reliable partner and energy supplier for the energy industry, the business sector and homes.
Vapo is boldly seeking peat-based business opportunities beyond the traditional fuel, agricultural and environmental peat businesses. Vapo Carbons aims to refine peat into technical carbon products for the global market. Examples of technical carbon products include activated carbon and carbon black. Activated carbon can be used in the purification of air and water, for example, while carbon black is used as a pigment in industry.
Our decades-long raw material expertise allows us to develop peat into future materials to serve the needs of the packaging and construction industries, for example. Peat fibres have unique special properties compared to many traditional materials. For this reason, products manufactured from natural peat fibre represent a competitive advantage, success factor and source of added value for consumers and producers of reprocessed products.
