Marine Plastic – Closing The Loop

MarPlas is an innovative new project led by the Sea Synergy research team and funded by the Environmental Protection AgEPA). The project is working on the full aspect of the fishing net re-use process, from collection and cleaning to reprocessing and new product creation.

Using a pre-tested co-design process working within coastal communities in four of Ireland’s FLAG regions the project aims to develop product prototypes from marine plastic fishing waste thus creating a resource and adding value to fishing net offcuts and old marine plastic waste material.
