2. Study on resource efficiency policies for land use related to climate mitigation
DG Climate Action
The study assesses the impacts of different policy options on land use related to climate mitigation. BIO* helps the EC develop a policy framework suited to efficiently minimise land use related to GHG emissions while maximising carbon removals.
3. Study on potential climate change effects on drinking water resources across the EU
The study reviews the impacts and mitigation/adaptation measures, develops a vulnerability assessment of different drinking water resources, recommendations for scientists, decision-makers and policy-makers (at local, regional, national and EU levels).

4. Development of methodology to assess health and environmental risk from the use of fuel metallic additives
DG Climate Action
The aim of the project was to serve as a basis for the Health and Environmental Risk Assessment report on fuel metallic additives that the Commission delivered by the end of 2012. BIO* established a preliminary risk assessment approach for determining the risks to health and environment due to the use of metallic additives in fuel regulated by Directive 98/70/EC.
