How to reduce plastic consumption in aquaculture? – A research team, in partnership with SINTEF, has formulated 25 practical ideas to promote the circular use of plastics in aquaculture. The aim is to reduce plastic consumption and improve environmental goals.
The 69-page guide, part of the POCOplast project, offers solutions to sustainably manage post-consumer plastics.
Helene Øyangen Lindberg from SINTEF emphasises the importance of effectively managing plastics in the aquaculture sector to prevent environmental pollution.
This project is a step towards a circular economy, focusing on the sustainable use of plastics in aquaculture. Proposals include equipment rental, the adoption of reuse practices and the creation of closed-loop material flow processes.
The POCOplast project aims to guide the industry towards more sustainable practices in the use of plastics, contributing to a more responsible management of resources and materials.
The POCOplast project is committed to promoting the sustainable use of hard plastics, such as nets and ropes, from aquaculture in Norway. The project aims to develop new knowledge and apply circular economy principles to create a more sustainable value chain.
Through the creation of a Learning Alliance, the project has brought together companies and researchers to identify opportunities for change towards a more environmentally sustainable direction.
