CLEAR RIVERS officially started a new pilot project in Overijssel with the aim of retrieving, monitoring, researching, and recycling plastic from the river IJssel.
Throughout the pilot, the plastic litter will be monitored for quantity, composition, and type of plastic.
Subsequently, CLEAR RIVERS, together with regional partners, research centers, and circular entrepreneurs will research how the retrieved plastic can be locally recycled.
The pilot is a CLEAR RIVERS’ initiative, supported by the Provincie Overijssel, the Gemeente Zwolle, SC Johnson, Rijkswaterstaat and ENGIE. Various partners are participating in the Pilot, such as Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Windesheim, OOZ, Natuur & Milieu.
We cannot wait to see the first results.
