Maritime industry against plastic waste

OLDENBURG. At an NPorts webinar in June entitled The Challenge of Plastic Waste in Ports, five speakers from research, environmental protection and maritime business gave presentations on the issue of plastic waste – from how it gets into the oceans to how to deal with the problem in the ports. Björn Fuhlendorf and Romina Hanisch (both NPorts) spoke of their experience using the Seabin marine litter bin, which is currently in use in the ports of Emden, Wilhelmshaven and Cuxhaven.
