Getting down to business

Season 1, Ep. 6

Hear from entrepreneurs and innovators from across Europe about how the LIFE Programme has supported the development of new products and processes in the circular economy


We talk to entrepreneurs detoxifying paints and coatings with environmentally-friendly alternatives; developing new fungi-based food from cereal bio-processing waste; using farm by-products to cultivate alternative proteins, a circular desalination process on an isolated Greek island using solar power; and tackling the waste footprint of the ski boot industry through materials recycling


European Commission official Paola Migliorini sets out the policy aspects of the circular economy, and former European Commissioner for the environment Janez Potočnik, now Co-Chair of the UN International Resource Panel, adds valuable perspectives on resource efficiency.
