First simulations reveal up to 70% savings from value chain optimisation

Resource efficiency is not only a critical environmental issue, it also plays a decisive role in industrial competitiveness. Despite the huge potentials present, resource efficiency measures have mostly been enacted only within single factories. A new study by Greenovate! Europe reveals hidden resource efficiency possibilities of up to 70% of resource costs through optimisation of the entire manufacturing value chain.

WASTECOSMART – Maximising resource efficiency in European regions

The WASTECOSMART project aims to strengthen and increase the innovation capacity of regional research-driven clusters in resource efficiency through co-operation, research and technological development within the waste sector.

CENTRAL EUROPE Study on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

A Greenovate! Europe Study for the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme has concluded that transnational energy projects substantially assist central European regions to adapt their regional energy policies and highlights some of the most outstanding tools created by the Programme’s projects.

MeeFS – Multifunctional Energy Efficient Façade System for Buildings Retrofitting

The MeeFS project aims to develop, evaluate and demonstrate an innovative multifunctional façade system for improving the energy efficient retrofitting of the residential building sector across Europe.
