LIFE MCUBO has been promoted by Telerioja, through a report which has been published last October. The main objective of the MCUBO Project is to minimize the environmental impact related to water management in the food industry. It will be possible to carry out thanks to the contribution of the LIFE Programme of the European Union with 60% of the total budget (526.747,00 € ).

The main objective of the MCUBO Project is to minimize the environmental impact related to water management in the subsectors with the highest water consumption (meat, juices and canned vegetables) through an effective demonstration at 3 industrial plants.

The consortium consists in 4 partners: ‘Escuela Superior de Ingenieros’ (TECNUN), which belongs to ‘Universidad de Navarra’; and the innovation center ‘

’; the ‘Asociación de la Industria Navarra’ (AIN) and the ‘Centro Tecnológico Empresarial Alimentario’ (CTIC-CITA).

Moreover, a company from each of subsectors will collaborate as collaborating entity in the project to validate the improvements developed.
