Currently, the world produces more plastic objects than ever before, with 500 million tons in 2019 according to Greenpeace. Many of these objects are single-use. There is an urgent need to find opportunities to add value to plastic, still on a linear trajectory.
A major threat to oceans is the pollution caused by marine plastic litter. Faced with anthropic action, this project aims to monitor the plastic production chain by integrating disposal and recycling strategies. As expected results and impacts, we will have an X-ray of the plastic production chain, as well as strategies to combat pollution so that coastal communities do not succumb.
This project will make new communities available knowledge and ways of generating income with the sale of concrete artifacts with shredded plastic collected from oceans. We believe that the meeting of a multidisciplinary team is necessary due to the complexity of the steps.
