An infection-preventing hands-free handle
– made from Fortum Circo® recycled plastic.

Door handles in public places spread contagious diseases. Clean-energy company Fortum has developed Fortum Vipu (Virus Prevention Unit), a door-handle supplement manufactured from Fortum Circo® recycled plastic. Attaching to door-handles, it enables opening the door with your arm, instead of your hand. Fortum Vipu gives plastic waste a new life and prevents the spread of diseases.


Fortum Circo

Fortum Circo is a plastic recyclate produced from post-consumer plastic waste. With consistent and high quality, versatility and solid availability, Fortum Circo recycled plastic can be used in a wide variety of products – from household appliances to industrial and commercial films and blow-molded articles. Fortum Circo is made with no compromises: it is a safe and reliable solution for sustainable plastics production.

Why Fortum Circo plastic recyclate?


We guarantee the consistent, high quality of Fortum Circo recycled plastics from batch to batch and from month to month by having the entire recycling chain, including the sorting of waste plastics, washing and compounding, in-house.


The origin of the feedstock material and the way the plastic waste is treated plays a key role in the sustainability of the recyclate and its production. By having the whole recycling process in our own hands, we guarantee the sustainability.


Fortum Circo recyclates are very versatile. The granules can be customised to different compounds and adapted into existing processes, so there is no need to invest in new moulds or equipment.
