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.
