Successful plastic waste research

BREMERHAVEN. In March, three pupils at the Geschwister-Scholl school in Bremerhaven – Danny Dolinski, Mohannad Sarha and Rebal Issa – picked up first prize at “Jugend forscht” (youth researches), a regional competition for geo and space sciences. They researched the topic of “pollution of the Bremerhaven harbour basin caused by micro- and macroplastics.” The trio not only used samples for their research that came from “Seabin”, a “trash-skimmer” project that has been running for a year, but also examined silt samples made available to them by bremenports.
