The LIFE Programme turns 30 years

The LIFE CO2IntBio Project will take part in the LIFE Innovates Climate Action C2C Platform Meeting on November 8th-9th. In this event will be analyzed systemic innovation and climate action in Europe. Beyond technological developments, systemic innovation is an approach that includes the interactions between research centres, industry, policymakers and general public.

The European Climate Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA), NEEMO, and the LIFE Integrated Project Coast to Coast Climate Challenge, organize this meeting that will showcase best practice of sytemic innovation like an example of how LIFE projects contribute to innovation and diffusion of methods used for replicability.

On May 2022, the LIFE Programme of the European Union turnet thirty. The LIFE Programme is the European funding instrument for the environment and climate action.

In this 30 years, LIFE has co-financied more than 5.500 projects. With a funding of 5,4 billio € in the period 2021-2027, is one of the main instruments of the European Green Deal.

The LIFE Programme is divided into four sub-programmes: nature and biodiversity, circular economy and quality of life, climate change mitigation and adaptation and clean energy transition. The LIFE CO2IntBio project (2019-2023) is included into the co-financed projects of the sub-programme  of climate change mitigation.

The general objective of the project is contributing to the mitigation of CO2 emissions in energy intensive industrial sectors: electrical and thermal energy production from biomass combustion and commercial CO2 production. Carbon capture and purification technologies allow the reduction of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere in an innovative model of industrial integration.
