GHOST at the UCIF Anima Confindustria Conference

The treatments carried out in collaboration with Fismet Service S.r.l. on the ghost nets recovered from the seabed and aimed at outlining a possible mechanical recycling strategy for this type of material were presented on November 6th, 2019  during the annual conference of UCIF Anima Confindustria "Finishing becomes SMART" at the Cariplo Foundation Convention Center in Milan. During the day, the latest technological innovations on finishing and treatments  of surfaces were presented and the development of new opportunities in the circular economy framework has attracted great interest.

Innovative solutions for marine litter recycling presented at Maker Faire Rome 2019

From 18th to 20th October 2019, the 7th edition of the Maker Faire Rome - The European edition, the most important European event dedicated to technological innovation, took place in Rome. More than 100 thousand visitors could discover the news of the innovation world exhibited within 7 pavilions (Re-think, Learn, Create, Discover, Make, Research).
Hosted by the Bioeconomy village, the ISMAR, IRBIM, IGAG and IRET Institutes of the National Research Council (CNR), have set up a "Fatti di Plastica" stand, focused on projects aimed at tackling marine litter issues. It was an important opportunity to present the results achieved by the LIFE GHOST Project in the field of the ghost nets’mechanical recycling and those expected from marGnet project on the chemical recycling of marine waste.

GHOST and marGnet projects at the World Oceans Day

On Saturday 8 June, more than three hundred people took part in the public event organized by the Institute of Marine Sciences of Venice (ISMAR-CNR), in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, the Venetian District of Research and Innovation, Science Gallery Venice and with the Museum of Natural History, to celebrate the World Oceans Day 2019. During the event, the exhibition "The art of marine sciences - Oceans portrayed by artists and researchers", born from the collaboration among some students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice and some CNR researchers was presented to the citizens. Starting from the analysis of some environmental issues, the artists have reworked the information in the light of their artistic sensibility, creating suggestive art-works that have been set up in the large atrium of the Institute of Marine Sciences. As part of this exhibition, an art-work related the ghost net issue has been realized by two young and talented artists, Giulia Deganello and Erica Giacomazzi, who were scientifically supported by Nicoletta Nesto and Riccardo Fiorin. The installation, entitled "Trama di Fondo" consisting of a 10 minutes sound track and fishing equipment recovered from the seabed, allowed the visitors to reflect on the damage caused by the ghost nets but also on the potential of these waste materials, retracing the main stages of the Life GHOST project and discovering the ambitious goals of the marGnet project which aims to find new chemical recycling solutions to transform this waste into marine fuel.

 

Ghost nets' issue presented at VenetoNight 2019

On 27th September the  ghost nets issue faced by LIFE-GHOST  and MARGNET projects was presented  at Ca’Bottacin (University of Venice). Projects' aims and possible solutions were illustrated to students and citizen though the art work "Trama di Fondo", during the VenetoNight 2019 event, organised in the framework of the annual celebration European Researchers' Night. All the art works of the exhibition "The Art of Marine Sciences", presented last June during World Oceans Day celebration at ISMAR, will be exhibited from 11th  to 25th October 2019 at the M9 museum in Mestre (Venice).

Goodbye to plastic. Are we ready?

Are we ready to live without plastic? Andrea Bettini of RaiNews realized an interesting video (in Italian language) on plastic waste which threatens the health of our seas, aimed at exploring  possible solutions suitable to protect the environment, the economy and our lifestyles. The GHOST team would like to thank RaiNews editorial team for giving us the possibility to contribute to the video which can be viewed at the following link: http://www.rainews.it/dl/rainews/media/Addio-alla-plastica-Siamo-pronti-d58565ee-d2ca-403f-99d1-a8b9b3ebfa9f.html
