R&D partner on cork raw-material, processes and cork oak forest
Cork oak forest is a rich ecosystem that promotes soil conservation, microclimate regulation, desertification prevention and high levels of biodiversity. Furthermore, cork oak forest contributes to CO2 sequestration as a result of cork production. We have been interested on the enhancement of cork by-products and cork oak forestry activities, contributing to sustainable forestry and cork exploration, green processes and technologies, environment preservation, climate action and biodiversity. We are known as a specialized technological centre on cork preparation, by-products and manufacturing processes. Our expertise also includes life cycle analysis (LCA).
