Projects of Interest

 The following table lists a series of both LIFE and non-LIFE projects having common issues with LIFE microTAN.

Project Reference Acronym Common issues with LIFE microTAN
LIFE13 ENV/IT/000840 GREEN LIFE Development of new technologies to reduce the environmental impact of the leather processing industry. It focus in the liming stage and proposes an enzymatic and oxidative liming process to produce leather of the same quality, with reduced environmental costs.
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000243  LIFE SHOEBAT Creation of an interactive tool, which brings together the most environmentally friendly methods applicable to the tanning and footwear sectors.
LIFE11 ENV/ES/000562  IBERWASTE Valorisation of Iberian pig wastes. Proposes the use of an ECO-hydrolysis procedure for the transformation of protein pig wastes into amino acid.
LIFE13 ENV/ES/001115 LIFE+ VALPORC Valorisation of animal by-products (e.g. carcasses) from the pork industry.
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000406 LIFE GISWASTE Development of a GIS-based methodology and IT tool which simulates the technical, economic, and environmental viability of the recovery alternatives for the agrifood by-products (chiefly vegetables, meat, and dairy products).
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000309 LIFE DYES4EVER Use of biopolymers (cyclodextrins) as encapsulation agents for dyes.
LIFE10 ENV/IT/000404 NOW Promotion of the prevention, recovery and recycling of waste produced by organised large-scale distribution, with a particular focus on organic (i.e. food) waste and thus contributing to reducing CO2 emissions.
LIFE13 ENV/ES/001138 LIFE TEXTILEATHER New procedures for the finishing operations at tanneries.
LIFE13 ENV/IT/000470 LIFE ECODEFATTING Use of products of natural origin, capable of substituting chlorinated currently used in the defatting phases during the leather tanning cycle.
LIFE12 ENV/IT/000356 LIFE RESAFE Production and use of a fertilizer based on urban organic waste, bio-char and farm organic residues.
LIFE11 ENV/ES/000574 LIFE ecoRaee Industrial preparation process for reusing wastes (electronic equipments).
LIFE11 ENV/ES/000513 MASTALMOND Use of almond residues in the formulation of biodegradable plastics.
LIFE10 ENV/IT/000364 ECOFATTING Use of new fatliquoring products of natural origin, capable of substituting chlorosulfonated currently used in the fatting phases during the leather tanning cycle.
LIFE10 ENV/IT/000365 PODEBA Use of recycled waste (poultry dejection), as bating agent in the leather tanning process.
LIFE12 ENV/IT/000352 BioNad Use of by-products of the dairy industry (lactose) as modifiers of water-insoluble dyes, for its application in the leather industry.
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000265 LIFE ADNATUR Use of natural products to improve coagulant efficiency in the primary treatment of wastewaters at urban and industrial level.
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000315 LIFE CO2SHOE Development of a carbon footprint calculation tool for the footwear sector, which allows the measurement of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced by each pair of shoes.
LIFE12 ENV/ES/000727 LIFE REVA-WASTE Sustainable management of a broad spectrum of wastes (non-recyclable fraction proceeding from waste treatment plants and industrial, together with biomass, livestock and agro-food wastes) in an integrated plant.
