HORIZON Magazine, the EU Research & Innovation publication, has recently published an article on plastic pollution and the H2020 European project In-No-Plastic (Innovative approaches towards prevention, removal and reuse of marine plastic litter). The article allows readers to better understand the details of the project and its numerous partners, shining a light on the clean-up and monitoring technologies being developed by the project and the ways in which these tools can be used to combat the global plastic pollution problem.
The article features interviews with James Comerford, project coordinator of InNoPlastic and Davide Poletto, executive director of Venice Lagoon Plastic Free.
HORIZON Magazine is written by independent journalists on behalf of the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation. It aims to communicate the priorities and achievements of EU-funded research, its impact on citizens’ lives and its contribution to the EU goals of smart and sustainable growth.
