    The objective of this webinar was to discuss and share knowledge on cutting-edge technologies used for the removal and recycling of plastic Marine Litter.

    Organized in a hybrid format, the event was organized in four main sessions, and included thematic round tables and Q&A moments; (i) the first session of the day was be dedicated to introducing the invited projects and the partners’ representatives; while (ii) the second part was focused on the different technologies developed, or under development, for the removal of ML; (ii) the third part of the workshop was dedicated to litter recycling activities in a circular economy perspective; a fourth session closed the workshop, dedicated to the smartphone apps developed within the projects MAELSTROM and In-No-Plastic to assist operators in the recycling process of the collected litter.

    This workshop was linked to the celebrations on June 5th, on the occasion of the World Environment Day, with a dedicated clean up campaign. Both the international workshop and clean up are official events of EU Green Week, this year dedicated to the theme “Zero pollution for healthier people and planet”.
