About the LIFE programme
Measuring and protecting Andalusian coastal carbon sinksWhen forests disappear it is easy to notice. Much less visible, and happening 4 times faster, is the loss of marine meadows which keep significant reserves of carbon out of the atmosphere. Saltmarshes, which were traditionally disregarded, are now recognised as provide important ecosystem services. LIFE Blue Natura is focusing on measuring and protecting these vital carbon sinks.
Recycling construction foamsThe REPOLYUSE project is pioneering solutions to recycle plastic waste from the refrigeration or construction industry, car seats and manufacturing waste from the automotive industry and lock it back into new construction materials. Its main target are polyurethane foams, commonly used for insulation.
