The Interdisciplinary Laboratory of the Environment (LIMA), connected to the Energy Planning Program (PPE), is part of the Technology Center of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), whose objective is to strengthen the action of professors and students at the Alberto Luiz Coimbra Institute for Graduate Studies and Research in Engineering (COPPE) in the area of Environmental Engineering, enabling the carrying out of joint studies and projects and the consolidation of interdisciplinary lines of research in this area.

LIMA was created in December 1997 with the support of the area of Environmental Sciences of the Scientific and Technological Support Program (PADCT/CIAMB) and resources of the World Bank and the Ministry of Science and Technology. It is one of the results of the integrated research program conducted between 1995 and 1997 that involved the development of Environmental Auditing methodologies and the consolidation of the Master's and Doctorate courses in the Interdisciplinary Area of Environmental Engineering, with an emphasis on the subareas of Environmental Planning, Environmental Geotechnics, Environmental Management of Production, Environmental Technology, Environmental Modelling, Coastal and River Basin Management, Environmental Acoustics, and Transportation and the Environment.
