To address the ecology of sharing and evaluate of the environmental impacts of peer-to-peer Sharing ifeu has recently published a report under the German title "Ökologie des Teilens - Bilanzierung der Umweltwirkungen des Peer-to-Peer- Sharing" as part of the "PeerSharing" project.
Migrants in the focus of environmental education: The Integra et Klima project links relevant aspects of personal carbon footprint and climate protection with the acquisition of a new lan-guage and vocational qualification measures. The teaching materials are available online.
Greenhouse gases (especially CO2) emitted from the burning of fossil fuels are significant drivers of climate change and a global threat to society and the environment. ifeu is taking part in eForFuel, an EU-funded research and innovation action that seeks to provide a sustainable replacement of fossil fuels.

A Decision Support System (DSS) is being implemented as part of the MAGIC project, which aims at the sustainable development of resource-efficient and economically profitable industrial crops grown on marginal lands. This will help various stakeholders access, visualize and understand marginal land information for Europe. Join the survey!
Many innovations regarding the cultivation and conversion of algae make new usage concepts possible. ifeu conducted extensive research into the sustainability of systems of this kind in the EU-funded D-Factory and PUFAChain projects. This resulted in a range of findings for a more sustainable design of algae biorefinery concepts.
On the occasion of the 26th European Biomass Conference & Exhibition in Copenhagen on 15 May 2018, the 2nd International SEEMLA Symposium will be held. Ifeu will present interim results. Articles on marginal lands and the GIS tool were published in the “BE sustainable” magazine and the “Biobased Future” newsletter.
First results are available: The international research team is moving closer to its goal of production of fuels using lignocellulosic biomass on a demonstration scale in the future. ifeu leads the integrated sustainability assessment accompanying the project. Within its framework, it conducts, among other things, a comprehensive screening life cycle assessment.
The construction industry is one of the largest consumers of natural resources and energy in the German economy. The mass building material concrete plays a central role in terms of savings in the construction industry. The final report about the project funded by the German Federal Environmental Foundation is now available to download.
