RAMI Raw Materials is a national, joint research infrastructure. Its target is to strengthen the long-term core expertise in Otaniemi (together with GTK and VTT), and to place Finland among the strong actors in natural and new inorganic material research needed in the circular economy.
At Aalto University, we focus to process, characterize and recycle primary and secondary raw materials and to search for new cutting-edge material replacements for e.g. future sustainable technologies. The research enabled by the infra can be divided to materials science and chemistry, electrochemistry, metal processing and recycling.
RAMI research infrastructure at Aalto University covers the research facilities at the School of Chemical Engineering that operate in the field of inorganic materials (metals, oxides etc.). The research enabled by the infra can be divided to materials science and chemistry, electrochemistry, metal processing and recycling. The infrastructure offers an excellent environment for the needs of education, researcher training and research projects. Services are also provided for industry and other stakeholders.
Open accessibility of equipment available for synthesis, analysis and characterization of inorganic materials is available at https://infrabooking.aalto.fi. The prerequisite for the access is the facility introduction training. In some cases, the analysis will be conducted as a service by the trained staff only.
