FanpLESStic-sea is an EU INTERREG Baltic Sea Region project aimed at decreasing and removing microplastics in the Baltic Sea.
FanpLESStic-sea envisaged outputs are:
A model to map, understand and visualize microplastic pathways that will be applied to the partners’ cities and/or regions
Piloting of new technology i) for filtering out microplastics; ii) sustainable drainage solutions as means for removal of microplastics; and iii) to remove microplastics from stormwater
Defining innovative governance frameworks and engaging a large range of players for the implementation of coordinated and cost-efficient measures resulting in locally adapted investment proposals/plans for each partner’s region
Dissemination of project results, including reports on barriers and ways forward, to increase institutional capacity on up-stream and problem-targeted methods to remove microplastics.
The FanpLESStic-sea project will run for 30 months (January 2019-June 2021).
