The project ‘Strategies of circular economy and advanced bio-based solutions to keep our lands and seas alive from plastics contamination’, in short SEALIVE, which is financed by the Horizon program of the European Union, will organize a knowledge transfer event in the context of the IEES 2023 conference on Monday October 2.
The event is part of a series of five such events in different countries that aim to inform stakeholders about the project and especially about the bioplastic products created by the project, which include fishing nets, aquaculture bags, containers for transporting products fishing tackle, ground cover films, reusable cutlery, and containers and membranes for food packaging and preservation.
The products, which are made from bio-materials such as algae and organic waste, can be recycled, bio-degraded and composted at the end of their use.
As part of the SEALIVE event, participants’ views on bioplastics will also be recorded.
The event is organized by the two Cypriot partners of the project, the Center for Studies and Research “AKTI” and the Environmental Consultants-Researchers company “ISOTECH Ltd”.
