Britest to lead European Horizon 2020 sustainability project 

Britest is to lead the co-ordination of project STYLE - a two year coordinated support activity across the European process sectors, funded by the Horizon 2020 / SPIRE programme.

Launched in January 2015, project STYLE aims to identify and deliver a practical 'toolkit' that can be used by industry and future European funded projects to assess the value (in sustainability terms) of new technologies and process modifications that seek to make resource and energy efficiency improvements. 

The project has three main objectives:

  1. To identify best practice in sustainability evaluation, across multiple sectors in the process industries and through value chains, via inventory and classification of established approaches.
  2. To test and deliver a practical toolkit for sustainability evaluation of processes and products, spanning multiple sectors that is easily usable by non-practitioners of sustainability assessments.
  3. To determine gaps, through critical assessment and validation, and identify future research needs to improve the ‘toolkit’ and ensure broad applicability across sectors.
