Pilot sites in different regions of the European Union will be selected to:

  • Test different variants of the weed control system and demonstrate the environmental advantages as well as its cost effectiveness and its efficiency in the medium-long term in comparison with other competitive products.
  • Demonstrate the environmental benefits of the fertility mats.
  • Test and demonstrate products that can become a best practice in erosion protection.


A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of the biopolymer based products will be performed.


The results of this Life+ project will be disseminated by means of:

  • The organization of day-events at the different pilot sites
  • Participation to seminars, fairs and exhibitions
  • Inviting stakeholders of different countries
  • Publication of technical manuals and reports, flyers and other promotional material
  • Project website:
