Irish Ocean Literacy Network Meeting: Special Theme: Marine Litter & Plastics


SPECIAL INSPIRE talk on Plastics and Compostable Products by Dr.Declan Devine & Dr. Ian Major Inspire Project : researching more environmental friendly materials /plastics “Used food packing is often difficult to sort and clean, and that’s if it’s a simple one plastic sheet or container. The use of multiple plastics in the same film adds complexity to this process. Combined with the prohibitive cost, this can make recycling uneconomical. Through INSPIRE, we’ll create special compostable plastic that can be disposed of in the brown food waste bin. This will help create a circular economy that will reduce the quantity of plastic ending up in the landfill or the sea.”
