Seaclic by Storopack project was the big winner of the Ocean’s Calling Award.
The main objective of the project is to develop a packaging production technology for very sensitive food products, such as fish, as efficient and as an alternative to conventional EPS (Expanded polystyrene) packaging.
This project stood out among the competitors, in the evaluation of merit of the finalist applications, by Sociedade Ponto Verde and the OCEANWISE Partners. You can get to know the Seaclic by Storopack here.
OCEANWISE, a project funded by the Interreg Atlantic Area, is coordinated by the Direção-Geral de Recursos Naturais, Segurança e Serviços Maritímos (DGRM – Department of Natural Recources, Security and Maritime Services). It has a total of 13 partners from 5 different countries: Portugal, Ireland, France, Spain and the United Kingdom.
OCEANWISE intends to generate recommendations for public policies, as well as new and best practices, related to the use, production, recycling and capture of EPS/XPS after its use, through the application of the principles of resource-efficiency, participatory methods and circular economy principles.
Driven by the EU- Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the OSPAR Convention’s Regional Action Plan on Marine Litter, the goal is to present the best solutions and results to drive more sustainable policies and best practices.
The closing of the Ocean’s Calling was marked on the World Ocean Day, and it is essential to continue remembering the importance, for human life, and to alert to the daily impact of our actions on the marine environment, as well as to recall its importance for the biodiversity of species and conservation of marine areas.
