Material Efficiency along the Automotive Life Cycle

Final Report S_LIFE
source: S_LIFE


In the S_LIFE project, partners examined the vehicle life cycle, proposing measures and solutions to improve the sustainability of the material value chain. It is a European Region of Knowledge project under the Seventh Framework Programme of Research and Development.

Seven partner organisations from six countries teamed up in S_LIFE (European Synergies and Cooperation for Sustainable vehicle along the Life-Cycle ) to assess the challenges, map the available knowledge and stakeholders, and propose adequate support and research actions.

The Final Report offers its readers a project overview on the construction of the Joint Action Plan and results of the work-packages.
