Commission to provide ?200 million for nearly 200 new LIFE+ projects




BULGARIA (five projects - ?6.6 million)

LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance (one project - ?1.8 million)


This LIFE project seeks to demonstrate effective separation, collection, treatment and recycling of WEEE in Bulgaria. It will introduce a comprehensive and integrated system of WEEE management in a selected municipality. The approach will be based on: improved systems for the separate collection of waste streams; and modern recycling technologies. The project will select, purchase and install a specific waste-treatment facility for WEEE in the chosen municipality.

CYPRUS (five projects - ?6.1 million)

LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance (four projects - ?4.6 million)

INTER-WASTE (Cyprus University of Technology)

The project will demonstrate a sustainable conversion technology for energy generation, and sustainable processes for waste and wastewater handling. This will be done through the construction of an innovative integrated system based on anaerobic processes that can be used to treat urban wastewater, as well as other bulk organic wastes (BOW. i.e. household organic waste, agricultural waste and manure).

ITALY (40 projects – ?92.5 million)

LIFE+ Environment Policy and Governance (24 projects - ?63.8 million)

RELS (Università di Modena e Reggio)

The overall goal of this project is to contribute to the achievement of EU targets on waste management through awareness policies, training, demonstration and innovative actions. The project will design and demonstrate a sustainable, integrated cycle for waste management and develop an energy-recovery plant using state-of-the-art technologies for converting waste into power.



METABIORESOR (Instituto Murciano de Investigación y Desarrollo Agrario y Alimentario)

This project will implement innovative technologies and methods for the treatment of waste materials and by-products generated by municipalities and livestock activities. A biomethanation pilot plant will be developed for converting the organic matter present in the waste into biogas, whereas digestates, another product of the biomethanation process, will be used for generating energy. The whole process will reduce waste quantities by 99%.


PARK RENOVA (Ayuntamiento de Huesca)

The aim of this project is to create self-sufficient energy supplies for the Huesca solid urban waste landfill facility, by introducing a new technology that captures and converts methane produced within the municipal landfill into power for the landfill’s operations. Additional alternative energy sources (wind and solar) will be adopted and further environmental gains will be secured by replanting closed landfill sections with trees.
