Overview

Objectives

CLAIM focuses on the development of innovative cleaning technologies and approaches, targeting the prevention and in situ management of visible and invisible marine litter in the Mediterranean and Baltic Sea.

Two innovative technological cleaning methods will be developed. An innovative floating boom for collecting visible litter and a method to measure micro litter on board ships (Ferrybox) will be developed.

Effectiveness of developed devices and methods will be demonstrated under real conditions. Innovative modelling tools to assess the marine visible and invisible plastic pollution at the basin and regional scales will be developed.

An ecosystems approach will be followed to evaluate the potential benefit from proposed litter cleaning methods to ecosystem services.
