Tracegrow - fighting for the cleaner future

-- Theworld (Theworld.jpg)

Having lived seven years abroad in three different continents, has been an eye opener in many ways. In Finland we are born with clean air, water, food and have learned to take it as granted. But unfortunately there are places in the world where things aren’t quite the same and I have had to witness that as an individual, as a father and as an employee.

I am currently on a business trip and when I saw that screen on my multimedia system on board Airbus A340, it brought back memories of those experiences and reminded me of the importance of what Tracegrow is doing when it is developing and providing the world with the unique Finnish technology, which can truly revolutionize the handling of the alkaline battery waste.

To have a work that has a meaning is deeply satisfying. We all at Tracegrow have that kind of work and are proud and humble in being able to contribute to the global fight for clean air, water and food.
