Forture: The Force of the Future - EU Environment LIFE Programme

LIFE16 ENV/IT/000307


LIFE: Force of the Future (FORTURE) is a project that began in October 2017, aimed at developing a sustainable manufacturing model for the production of ceramic tiles, with the support of the EU LIFE Programme.


Although technological development and the introduction of new technologies have contributed to reducing the environmental impacts of the ceramic sector, the environmental variable has not yet been fully incorporated into production processes.

Specific objectives

LIFE: Force of the Future aims to solve the criticality due to the static nature of impact assessments based on historical series and which prevent corrective actions on products and processes, and to facilitate the collection of data for calculation.

Main actions

LIFE: Force of the Future proposes to achieve the project objectives by combining the results of ten specific actions which will develop over time according to the programme shown in a gantt.

Expected results

LIFE: Force of the Future proposes to reach some tangible and quantifiable outcomes after its implementation. Find out more!
