Philippe Miron said (about Indian Ocean): “In this work, we focus on pathways from the coast to the subtropical gyres, from one gyre to another, and from the gyres to the coast,” “We identified a high-probability transition channel connecting the Great Pacific Garbage Patch with the coasts of eastern Asia, which suggests an important source of plastic pollution there. And the weakness of the Indian Ocean gyre as a plastic debris trap is consistent with transition paths not converging within the gyre” External link

Philippe Miron said: “Our results, including prospects for garbage patches yet to be directly or robustly observed, namely in the Gulf of Guinea and in the Bay of Bengal, have implications for ocean cleanup activities,” “The reactive pollution routes we found provide targets – aside from the great garbage patches themselves – for those cleanup efforts” External link

Prof Dr says: "In pond management or in large aquacultures, microplastics can in principle be much better excluded due to the closed water systems. On the other hand, however, also here the human factor means that microplastics or macroplastics nevertheless enter ponds or flow-through systems and from there find their way into the organisms of fish, useful plants or mussels. This risk is additionally amplified by various functional plastic components in the system itself," External link

Prof Dr says: "When the growth bodies decompose, essential plant nutrients are continuously released into the water as part of the decomposition process, which are needed by the cultivated crops for growth. This therefore results in automatic fertilization. As a result, no or significantly less fertilizer would have to be added manually," External link

Thomas Blomqvist dice: “Las iniciativas globales globales no son suficientes para lograr los objetivos climáticos. Se requiere acción local, y en la región nórdica se han lanzado varias iniciativas para marcar la diferencia localmente. Por ejemplo, en Bornholm estamos ayudando a crear un modelo para los primeros sociedad libre de residuos. Junto con la empresa de residuos de Bornholm, BOFA, y la Sociedad Danesa para la Conservación de la Naturaleza (DN), estamos tratando de crear esto para los 50.000 habitantes de la isla en un ambicioso proyecto piloto para reutilizar y reciclar envases de plástico. es que el proyecto será una inspiración para otros, también en otras partes del mundo ” External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Det er blitt et så enormt stort problem som folk ikke klarer å ta det inn over seg. Vi har en visjon om at det ikke skal være plast i naturen i 2030, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Når vi ser hvordan det påvirker alt liv i havet har vi ikke noe valg. Vi ser hvordan det skaper problemer langs elvene før de fører plasten ut i havet. De må bruke forurenset vann til å vaske hus og klær. Det fører til oversvømmelser og forurenser drikkevannet. Innbyggerne drukner i plast og giftig avfall. Det haster enormt å få ryddet opp i dette. Situasjonen mange steder er ille, men vi kan ikke tillate at det blir enda verre, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Det viser bare hvor enormt stort dette problemet er. Vi skal få på plass avfallshåndteringssystemer i en rekke byer og lokalsamfunn som skal hindre at plasten kommer ut i elver og i havet. Vi skal gå foran med kunnskap og kompetansen for å vise hvordan de selv kan gjøre jobben og skalerer opp prosjektene, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Globalt ser vi at det bare er rundt fem prosent av plasten som kommer opp til overflaten i havet. De resterende 95 prosentene blir i vannet eller legger seg på havbunnen. Det vi ser er bare toppen av plastfjellet. Mye av det samme er nok situasjonene i Norge. I all den tid vi ikke klarer å rydde havbunnene, må vi stoppe plasten før den rekker å komme ut i havet, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – I snitt får hvert menneske på jorda i seg 5 gram mikroplast i uka. Det tilsvarer at vi spiser ett kredittkort i uka. Plasten får vi i oss blant annet gjennom drikkevannet, salt og maten vi spiser. Vi vet ikke konkret hva det gjør med oss, men forskerne jobber med å finne svart på dette, External link

Karoline Andaur sier: – Vi trenger en nasjonal plan for hvordan man skal jobbe opp mot plast og plastforurensing. Vi må bekjempe unødvendig plast, og vi må få bedre systemer for å resirkulere plasten. Selv om vi er en havnasjon, har vi ikke noen helhetlig plan for å håndtere plast, External link
