    Reference projects


    Large quantities of microplastics are constantly entering the oceans from landbased sources. The project FanpLESStic-Sea aims to reduce this problem, particularly in the Baltic Sea region.

    The project has three key targets:

    • increased knowledge of where microplastics come from and their transport pathways
    • evaluation of technology that can reduce microplastic or reduce microplastic leakage before reaching watercourses,
    • increased knowledge and commitment of decision makers through suggestions on how to implement cost-effective methods to reduce microplastics.

    The project has partners in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Russia. SALT is the only Norwegian partner in the project.

    The project period is from January 1st 2019 to June 30th 2021, and the total budget of the project is 2 968 069 euro.

    OCEAN PLASTIC Marine plastic pollution from the Norwegian seafood sector – mapping, quantification and mitigation:

    The key objective of HAVPLAST is to reduce plastic pollution into the marine environment from the Norwegian fisheries and aquaculture sectors. Concrete mitigative measures will be suggested based on research on sources and quantities of plastic pollution from each sector. Relevant indicators will be suggested to measure the effects of mitigative measures suggested.

    Troms – Arctic Knowledge

    Troms – Arctic Knowledge

    «Troms – Arctic Knowledge» is a joint stand for businesses and public bodies from the Troms county in Norway during the international aquaqulture-fair “Aqua Nor” in Trondheim. SALT is project manager for the stand in 2015, 2017 and 2019. We co-operate closely with our sub-contractors Messetjeneste, Sisu Design lab and the Ultimate Seafood Chef – Einar Hallstensen.



    MARP3 MARine Plastic Pollution in the Arctic: origin, status, costs and incentives for Prevention. The goal of this project is to strengthen the knowledge base on marine litter in the Barents Sea. This is done by providing relevant research and knowledge to raise awareness and recommend methods to maintain a sustainable human activity contributing to less marine littering. Project leader is Norut and SALT holds the responsibility for a workshop on sources to marine litter on Svalbard and a workshop with stakeholders -to reduce marine littering in this area. SALT has also contributed in publishing scientific papers; this one is on sources to marine litter in Norway.
