Carbon Lane -project
Carbon Lane (CarLa) is an EIT Climate-KIC funded project which takes place during 2019. The project explores practical carbon drawdown solutions for urban green areas. During the project, scientific background and economic feasibility of the selected solutions are explored. In addition, the project develops general practices, science and awareness and contributes towards the development of the public procurement. During the project, a plan for a demonstration area of carbon drawdown solutions in Jätkäsaari will be made.
