OceanWise Stakeholders meeting in London

27 MARCH 2019

The third participatory session of the OceanWise project took place in London on march 27th. 16 stakeholders got together for a full afternoon of debate in search for solutions to make the EPS and XPS products less of a risk to the marine environment. 

The participants included EPS manufacturers, the British Plastics Federation, Seafood retail companies, alternatives to fish boxes, Marine litter policy, Governmental organisations and Waste policy entities.

Organized by Cefas, which is one of the partners to the project, this participated session resulted in a whole set of proposals, concerns and ideas which the stakeholders agreed to and which will now  integrate the OceanWise process. 

 

The most highlighted topics by the stakeholders in London were: Regulation, Investment on Infrastrucutres, Innivation, Education, and Environmental protection.

The next meeting will take place in Dublin, on May 30th. 

The project aims to propose updates of public policies and new good practices to be adopted by Industry.

OCEANWISE

  • OceanWise deals with marine litter in a circular economy perspective. It is focused exclusively on expanded polystyrene (EPS ) products and applications with a likelihood to become marine litter. OceanWise wants to approach this issue with a wide-view angle, by putting together a multi-sectoral platform to include Governmental bodies responsible for marine environment management, Industry and other stakeholders, waste management authorities, designers, circular economy modellers, I&D specialists in participatory processes, and end-users. EPS is short for expanded polystyrene, commonly known as plastic foams, and called styrofoam in the U.S.
