The European Commission has released recently the annual LIFE program report about the ecofriendly economy.
The publication, called “LIFE and the Circular Economy” shows the results obtained concerning the green economy and describes all the projects, funded by LIFE program, which have been judged worthy for the environment and the circular economy.
Circular economy means an economy composed of productions process based on the recycle of the industrial scraps and the manufacture of new green products.
The European Union, thanks to the LIFE program, is supporting and promoting this new kind of economy.
Transitioning to a more circular economy, where the value of products, materials and resources is maintained for as long as possible and the generation of waste is minimized, is an essential contribution to the EU’s long-term efforts to develop a competitive, sustainable, low-carbon and resource-efficient economy.
The Plados-Telma Group got, in 2013, an important grant from the LIFE program in order to fulfil the “Green Sinks” project that is the first ecofriendly sink completely made of organic and inorganic recycled materials.
Last year our project has been awarded by the European Commission as one of the best environmental European project of 2015.
On April 2017, the European Commission has recognized again the value of the “Green Sinks” project dedicating to it a wide description on the “LIFE and the Circular Economy” publication.
