The aim of the project is to promote and disseminate information among the targeted audiences on the scale of the food waste problem, their contribution in addressing it, possible solutions and the benefits that come from reducing food waste. Also, it focuses on minimizing the food waste that is generated and wasted, starting from the project’s target groups (i.e. businesses, consumers etc.) by reinforcing their awareness and knowledge about food waste prevention and responsible behavior.



Integrated information and awareness campaign for the reduction of plastic bags in the marine environment with education and information campaign. Τhe basic “pilot” of the implementation’s actions is the island of Syros.



Design, develop, test, optimize, evaluate and demonstrate an innovative household dryer for the drying of Bio-waste in order to significantly reduce its volume at source. The produced “final dry organic waste product”, without the moisture content and with the inactivation of pathogens, can be further used in different alternative and environmental friendly ways.



Design, develop, test, optimise and evaluate an innovative pilot-scale plant for the production of bioethanol from biowaste via bioconversion. This pilot plant was able to convert a large quantity of the biowaste feed into second-generation bioethanol.



The aim of the LIFE PAVEtheWAySTE project is to facilitate the implementation of the Waste Framework Directive in remote areas, by enabling local and regional authorities to improve their municipal waste recycling performance and thus pave the way to high resource efficiency. The innovative system will be able to sort and treat different types of recyclables and organic waste in a way to directly recover end-products of high quality and purity. In the course of the project, specific companies activated in the recycling industry will be engaged in order to ensure that the end-products will satisfy market specifications and that the recovered materials are exploited. The project implementation area comprises of two Greek remote areas, namely the Municipality of Naxos and Small Cyclades Islands and the Municipality of Ancient Olympia.



Develop the appropriate tools that will enable Waste Management Authorities and other stakeholders to substantially reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions resulting from their waste management (WM) activities.


What is the LIFE Programme?


The LIFE Programme is the EU’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The general objective of LIFE is to contribute to the implementation, updating and development of EU environmental and climate policy and legislation by co-financing projects with European added value.
