From an innovative idea, the Finnish company Molok Ltd has been able to create a widely used product family and an internationally acknowledged enterprise. Molok’s Deep Collection system is based on underground containers which are clean, aesthetic, and cost efficient. Private and public organizations have begun to consider waste as raw material and source of energy instead of just a problem for communities. In the modern waste management value chain recyclables and different waste types are separated at their source where containing waste types in an efficient way is important.

 

Several global challenges point towards Deep Collection systems as they enable more efficient use of the urban spaces and help to meet the tightening hygiene and environmental standards. Longer emptying frequencies will reduce costs, emissions and noise.

 

Molok is a clear market leader in its home turf, and exports already account for more than 70 per cent of the company revenue. In addition to Europe, Molok’s products are manufactured in North America and China. Molok’s products have been awarded the New EconomyAward in 2016.

 

Vaaka Partners is aiming to accelerate the international growth of the circular economy company. The organization has been strengthened with several new and additional key management positions for supporting the growth strategy.
