Luxembourg hosts a thriving CleanTech sector comprised of a growing number of companies that work mainly in the fields of eco-construction, renewable energy, waste management, water and electro mobility, and which are supported by numerous public agencies and research organisations.

The Luxembourg government provides an attractive economic environment to entrepreneurs who are keen to create value whilst reducing pollution, waste and energy consumption. Clean technologies and sustainable development have become key growth sectors as companies identify an increasing demand for ecologically sound products and services both locally and internationally.

The take-up of clean-technologies is greatly facilitated by an ambitious strategy, which Luxembourg has adopted in order to stimulate the production of eco-technology products and to support research and development in the clean technologies field, thereby leading to greater sustainability and economic diversification.

This action plan is oriented around the development of two different fields of capability:

–  the rationale use of natural materials
–  innovative materials

Research activities in environmental technologies focus on environmental management, life-cycle assessment, clean technologies and process engineering, environmental modelling as well as the sustainable management of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems.
