LIFE programme

Dear colleagues,

Mikronatura Środowisko - a company based in Poznan (Wielkopolska Region, Poland) is looking for partners for a project to be carried out in LIFE Programme.

The project consists of activities intended to test technologies aimed at qualitative improvement of water in areas of intense agricultural production. Its objective is not only to improve the quality of the environment, but also to improve the living conditions of local communities by means of effective reduction of odours which are an inherent element and curse of livestock production enterprises.

Please find more information in the attachment.

We would be grateful for sending the information to potential stakeholders from your regions.

Interested partners should contact by 12th June 2018:
Mr Tomasz Woszczyk,
Email: tw@proenv.pl
Mobile +48 600 830 102.

With kind regards,

Wielkopolska Region Brussels Office
Rue Montoyer 21, 1000 Brussels

Company Mikronatura Środowisko sp. z o.o. with its seat in Poznań (Poland) is currently preparing an application for an EU grant for a project within the LIFE programme. It is the sole financial instrument of the European Community dedicated entirely to co-funding projects in the field of protection of the environment and climate.

The project consists of activities intended to test technologies aimed at qualitative improvement of bodies of water in areas of intense agricultural production, and follows the requirements of the Water Framework Directive, the Nitrates Directive, as well as the Action Programme and the Water-Environmental Programme.

We intend to test solutions of the »nature-based« group which are 100% natural. The project provides for at least a four-year period of construction and testing solutions meant to reduce the influx of bio-genes (nitrogen and phosphorus compounds) to ground and surface waters in areas of particular exposure to nitrates of agricultural origin (NVZ). The objective of the project is not only to improve the quality of the environment, but also to improve the living conditions of local communities by means of effective reduction of odours which are an inherent element and curse of livestock production enterprises (industrial farms, and large-scale individual farms).

Our operation under the project will be carried out in association with European Regional Centre for Ecohydrology of the Polish Academy of Sciences (Łódź), which will become a co-beneficiary of the project, as well as with Poznań University of Life Sciences. An important element of LIFE projects is the collaboration aspect, also on international level. It can be demonstrated by adding stakeholders, or companies and institutions interested in the results of the research, to the project. A statement of interest does not require any involvement from stakeholders in the form of manpower, financial resources, or any other contribution, but only involves participation associated with subsequent transfer of »good practices« developed under the project. The planned budget of the project includes active involvement of stakeholders - field visits, internships, professional training and preparation for subsequent transfer of technologies aimed at improvement of environmental conditions and local residents' living standards which will be elaborated under the project. Collaboration with stakeholders is a very important and highly desired element of such projects.

The technologies we intend to test include organic manure storage pad, barriers to remove nitrogen compounds (incl. ammonium ions), sedimentation-biofiltering systems on watercourses (incl. drainage ditches), manure-conditioning technologies intended to control odours originating in the process of manure storage.

The project provides for construction of a large-sized pilot installation located in one of the NVZs (NVZ Kotomierzyca) in Kujawsko-Pomorskie Region, which covers an area of ca. 130 km2.

The schedule of the project has been determined as follows:

  • by 12 June 2018 - coordinating beneficiary (Mikronatura Środowisko) presents the concept of project assumptions (the so-called concept note);
  • October  2018 - concepts are selected from among those submitted by applicants and an invitation to submit a full application is issued;
  • by January 2019 - beneficiaries invited by the EU submit a complete funding application;
  • May 2019 - competition results are determined;
  • July 2019 - project commences.

Hoping you will find our invitation interesting, we also encourage you to contact us should you require any further information.

All interested partners should contact:
