Study for the Sustainable Valorization of Marine Plastic Debris

Plastic debris in the sea and coastlines becomes concurrently a tremendous environmental burden and potential risk to human health. The phenomena of microplastics pollution is of particular worldwide concern. This project aims to collect and recycle marine plastic waste, transform into useful innovative products by 3D printing and stimulate thereby in an environmentally sustainable way island economies.

We are looking actively for committed industrial and academic technology partners on this topic.

This project is in partnership with the non-profit Island Trails Network, Kodiak Island, Alaska, USA.
