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.
