European LIFE+ projects
Over the last few years, the European Commission’s LIFE+ program supported several projects of Solvay.
Solvay demonstrates its commitment to sustainable development through important innovative efforts aimed at reducing the environmental footprint of our own activities (such as resource efficiency, emission reduction, treatment of effluents) or those of our customers or consumers.
When scaling up to pilot or industrial scale these innovations developed in our R&I labs, however, our businesses often face a real challenge.
The LIFE+ program supports Solvay’s efforts to strengthen this demonstration phase and to ensure Solvay’s continued reliance on strong, European-based, competitive industrial assets.
The aim of this project is to develop and demonstrate a sustainable technology for the manufacturing of Li-ion battery.
The project will address recycling phosphor powders contained in energy-saving lamps.
Solvay has received support from the European Commission’s LIFE+ program and from ADEME for the industrial development pilot demonstration of its eco-friendly solvent Rhodiasolv® IRIS.
