Brief description of the project: Marine Litter has been an issue of concern since the 1970s in the Mediterranean. The problem is exacerbated by the basin’s limited exchanges with other oceans and its densely populated coasts, highly developed industry and tourism, among other inputs of litter. Many initiatives are currently dealing with monitoring and remediation actions but there is still a huge lack of Marine litter prevention actions that would really make the difference to solve the issue in the long run. This project aims at support the development of eco-innovative business solutions to prevent or minimize the use of persistent plastics able to end up as Marine litter.
