Blue Circular Economy is a three-year international project led by Professor Martin Charter, in which a team of researchers looked at the environmental impacts of waste fishing ropes and nets, and facilitated challenges for designers and businesses to create new products from these waste materials.
The project aims to support the development of an industry specialising in reducing fishing net waste in regions across Europe’s Northern Edge. It is co-funded by the EU Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (NPA).
