Project Vineco

Project Title : Application of Life Cycle Assessment for eco-innovation in wine production
Funding : Eurorregión Pirineos-Mediterráneo
Duration : 2013-2014
Coordination : Cyclus Vitae Solutions, S.L (spain)
Status IFV : Partner

Summary :

VINECO aims to offer guidelines to enterprises and others actors from the wine sector in the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion sector (Cataluña, Islas Baleares, Midi Pyrenées y Languedoc - Roussillon) in order to make a more efficient use of natural resources, reduce their environmental impact, and enhance competiveness, innovation and internationalisation.

These eco-innovative measures will be addressed, firstly, to the wineries participating in the pilot test. Secondly, these measures will be gathered in a best practices guide for the wine sector industry in this Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion that will help it to reduce the environmental impact of their activities.

Partners of the project have been chosen among different stakeholders within the Pyrenees-Mediterranean Euroregion, being representatives of innovation in the field of research and environmental consulting (Cyclus Vitae Solutions, S.L) , innovation in the wine sector for regional development (Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin Sud- Ouest) and economic promotion (Menorca Chamber of Commerce).

Technical excellence in sustainability, innovation applied to the wine sector, sustainable economic development and competitiveness make it a trinomial that is key that ensures the success of a project of this nature.
