Outotec joins initiative to establish the Industrial Waters Excellency Center
in Russia

Outotec collaborates with OAO Severstal, Kemira and Lahti Region Development
LADEC Ltd in the area of establishing the Industrial Waters Excellency Center
IWEC to address issues related to industrial water consumption in Russia.
IWEC's main training venues will be in the Severstal facilities in
Cherepovets, Russia.

The objective of the Industrial Waters Excellency Center IWEC is to present
new water technologies and solutions to Russian industries to reduce the
environmental burden and, at the same time, provide better economic
performance at lower costs. The agreed collaboration will be carried out via
implementation of actual projects, each of which is negotiated separately. The
first project will be optimization of water circulation in steelworks of
Severstal.

IWEC will also start studying mining, food and beverage, fertilizer, oil and
gas, power production, and forestry industries. The scope of activities will
include among other things the treatment of process waters and sludge, energy
efficiency in water treatment, chemicals to increase treatment efficiency,
Russian and international legislation and compliance systems, economically
feasible technologies of waste water treatment, and the decrease of
unaccounted water losses.

"We are committed to reducing the emissions of environmentally harmful
substances to the Baltic Sea through the Baltic Sea Action Group. In that
commitment we promised to promote the best available water technologies to
Russian industries, which is well in line with this IWEC initiative. We are
very pleased that Severstal has joined this initiative to establish IWEC. The
cooperation is also an evidence of good progress in networking of Northern
Dimension Forum. There are opportunities to improve environmental conditions
through water treatment and, at the same time, enhance efficiency", says
Outotec's CTO Kari Knuutila.
