This signed MOU is the first step in developing a Green technologies transfer and modernization platform in Kazakhstan. The platform will bring together green technology partners, companies and state authorities to work towards greener and cleaner Kazakhstan and the whole Central Asia region.

The areas of interest lie in water treatment, waste-to-energy and sludge treatment solution first and foremost, but will stretch to other areas in green technology field as well.

The Kazakhstan State is very keen on utilizing the Finnish expertise and know-how on the green technologies, such as waste processing, and especially the expertise of KaukoInternational as a project driver.

The Minister of Energy of Kazakhstan, Kanat Bozumbayev, reportedly said in Kazinform newspiece, that “As for Kaukointernational, it is, above all, a Finnish company. And you know, Finland is one of the most “green” countries in the world, not only in Europe. The level of their waste processing is 98 percent.[…] Therefore, when the President of Finland was here, a few weeks ago, the heads of our states agreed during the opening of Finland’s pavilion that Kazakhstan will use extensively the experience of Finland.” (Source:
