INANOTOOL APPROACH The objective of i-NanoTool is to contribute to the efficient implantation of the environmental policy and legislation in nanomaterials manufacturers companies, especially SMEs. It includes the development of an interactive platform (etool) for environmental self-diagnosis addressed to nanoparticles manufacturers in European countries. Its specific objectives are: • To [...]
The ECOFLEXOBAG project aims to reduce the negative environmental impact of commercial bags during their entire life-cycle. Its main objective is to develop and demonstrate an innovative methodology that will help manufacturers – particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs) – to design and produce environmentally sustainable bags. ECOFLEXOBAG project concluded [...]
Three calls were published and projects selected and initiated. Fourteen projects initiated, hereoff one project funded by a real common pot. The call after COII has been prepared in terms of discussing thematic research areas and selection of the areas of highest priority for the partners. The challenge to secure [...]
This report summarises the experiences made and lessons learned within the seven E2ReBuild projects in view of collaboration and action chains. Impacts and conclusions concerning the design and construction process, the communication management, the participation, the claim and time management, the work-flow on-site, the Health & Safety management, the relationship [...]
The aim is to reduce the energy use in the demonstration buildings to 30-50 kWh/m2a for heating, ventilation and hot water, by introducing innovative and sustainable renovation solutions. These solutions focus on industrial manufacturing methods for e.g., facade elements and standardised retrofit measures that allow a high replication potential. That [...]
Maps of forest vulnerability indexes to biotic forest damages. Information about sufficiency of existing forest health monitoring network for reliable damage prediction.
Model estimated high resolution vegetation carbon sink maps.
The most important expected results are: 1. A map of changes in future forest growth and carbon mitigation potential; 2. A map of changes in the susceptibility of forests to drought and selected biotic disturbance (pests/pathogens); 3. A map of LAI and biomass distribution in Finland; and 4. An Internet-based [...]
- A comprehensive protocol for assessment of the impacts of energy efficiency (EE) on indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and health - Demonstrating the effects of EE on IEQ and public health
The project is currently still running but already during the first three and a half years, Boreal Peatland LIFE has significantly improved the representativeness of the Finnish Natura2000 network and improved the conservational value and quality of Finnish mire habitats, including several priority habitats [Aapa mires* (7310), bog woodlands* (91D0), [...]
