Funding of marine waste project

March 22nd, 2016

AECO has been invited to be a partner in a project that will deal with marine waste in the Arctic. The main objective of this project is to set the stage for better management of marine litter. As part of the project, scientists may review and study the clean-up efforts already made by the industry and then give input on waste management facilities and communication related to waste in the Arctic environment. AECO will attend a workshop regarding the issue later this year. In the meantime, take a closer look at this infographic about the effects of marine litter.
