Project "MarineClean"


MarineClean. Marine debris removal and preventing further litter entry.

Main goal of the MarineClean project is to reduce marine littering and spillage of different oils from the seas, lakes and rivers and thus have a positive effect on marine ecology.

Therefore MarineClean project has few main outputs:

  • innovative edible and degradable barrier packaging as a solution for application on ships (this packaging can be removed with washing or during the cooking or eaten);
  • innovative and cheap net strip for collecting marine litter that floats on the water surface;
  • innovative fishing net made of bio‐based polymer with magnetic strip for easy tracing and collecting abandoned fishing nets;
  • networking of end‐users of marine litter cleaning equipment, edible packaging and of fishing equipment.

Proposed solutions will have positive effect on marine ecology: decreasing of marine litter in tested areas, higher number of cleaning groups/areas, higher share of edible/biodegradable packaging on ships, and a few of law changing proposals. All project products will be widely disseminated through web platforms and demonstration sessions in each participating country.

Project duration: 36 months (01.11.2011-31.10.2014).

Lead Partner - Turna, production and trade, d.o.o. (Slovenia).

Testimonials about 10 years of cooperation with KMTP

We are on the move and we are glad that our work is valued, there is no need to prove to anybody that in global modern space only those may remain who bravely implement innovative ideas, apply them in business. It is important for us that our Park community would strengthen and we all would gradually grow, the geography of our activities would broaden, while enterprises were happy by that what we can provide ... I would like to thank everyone who was with us for ten years by the words of French philosopher Blaise Pascal: ‘The past and present are our means: the future alone is our goal..."

 

Director of KSTP

Roma Stubrienė

I can firmly state that KSTP is an institution where the ideas are generated not for remaining on paper or deep in a drawer. They are effectively implemented, there is always a look to the future, and a further road is foreseen to ideas. This is a feature of a solid and responsible institution. As a resident of Klaipėda, not indifferent to the present and, even more to the future, I wish that KSTP as it was, so it also would be one of the most active, dynamic and creative economy engines not only at national level but also at wider spaces.
