Tecnalia is participating in the REFORM project, which is seeking to contribute towards the EU's eco-label criteria for composite components.
The Community eco-label is a voluntary scheme that aims to reduce the negative impact of consumption and production on the environment, health, climate and natural resources.
It promotes products with a low environmental impact and is based on full, life-cycle analysis, from production through to disposal for various products.
Four key areas are being developed for this purpose:
It is a 4-year project funded by the FP7 to develop the next generation of production technologies. The following 13 companies and research centres are participating in it: The University of Sheffield, TEKS, Mach4Lab, Acciona, Swerea-Sicomp, Tecnalia, Nova, ModuleWorks, Azimut-Benetti, Fraunhofer, DVST, FormTech Composites, DIAD Group.
