Networking activities with LIFE-Mermaids

The collaboration with the project LIFE Mermaids is leading to interesting results concerning the quantification of microplastic produced by the ghost nets and the dissemination of the results achieved by the two projects.

On 4 November 2016, a workshop entitled “Mitigation of Microplastics Impact Caused by textile washing processes” was held at the headquarters of the CNR-ISMAC (Mermaid partner) in Milan. The activities carried out by LIFE-MERMAIDS project,  focused on the development of technologies suitable to reduce the release of microplastics from synthetic clothing in the washing machine drain, have been presented as well as the networking activities undertaken with a number of projects (including LIFE-GhOST) aimed at identifying the best technical and management solutions for the mitigation of microplastics environmental contamination. The GHOST coordinator, invited to give a speech, showed the results achieved by GHOST project, highlighting which strategies should be adopted for a proper eco-sustainable management of the ghost nets.

In the framework of THEMES international conference “Measuring, Modelling and Predicting Marine Environments: State of the Art and Challenges”, organized by Cà Foscari University in Venice (23-25 November 2016), Dr. Sara Gavignano  (Mermaids team) presented the results of some experiments carried out in the framework of the networking activities between the two projects aimed at quantifying the microplastics released by the ghost nets retrieved from north Adriatic seabed.
