About our projects

CEDaCI Project – Interreg

The CEDaCI project aims to facilitate the integration of a circular economy for the data center industry, and more specifically for critical raw materials in North West Europe, increase their reuse, extend their life by reusing equipment, reduce the use of virgin materials, reduce the waste and environmental impacts of equipment and develop a sustainable and secure economy for the supply chain sector of these critical raw materials.

European Project – IRTC Business

The IRTC project is coordinated by ESM Foundation, Switzerland, and funded by EIT RawMaterials. EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union, is the largest and strongest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to boost the competitiveness, growth, and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation, new educational approaches, and guided entrepreneurship.

PlastiCity project – Interreg

The goal of the PlastiCity project is to develop strategies and solutions that are able to increase the recycling rate in the urban environment from 20-30% to 50% by unlocking the use of “lost plastics” as a secondary resource in the urban environment. The PlastiCity project analyzes the different actors in the region and the potential waste streams. It also allows the development and demonstration of new strategies and solutions to minimize waste and increase recycling rates of plastic waste.

European Project - SusCritMOOC

SusCritMOOC is coordinated by ESM Foundation, Switzerland, and funded by EIT Raw Materials. EIT RawMaterials, initiated and funded by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology), a body of the European Union, is the largest and strongest consortium in the raw materials sector worldwide. Its vision is to develop raw materials into a major strength for Europe. Its mission is to boost the competitiveness, growth, and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation, new educational approaches, and guided entrepreneurship.

Raw Material Criticality Assessment

Companies that rely on the supply of mineral resources and metals for the provision of their products and services could be subject to various value-chain risks. Geological, geopolitical, economic, technical, social, or environmental factors could affect the extraction, refining, or processing of raw materials, and the deployment of the technologies in which these materials are used.

European Project - CALIMERO

CALIMERO is a project funded by the European Union, whose goal is to improve current Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment (LCSA) methodologies of certain sectors from bio-based industries to identify and tackle most relevant sources of pollution. Current methods lack of some important factors which will be taken into account in order to have a broader picture of bio-based industries’ sustainability performance. Improving current methodologies, then, is key towards finding greener and more sustainable solutions.
