Lunch lecture: Plastic Soup
The first Tuesday? Lunchlecture! Many have heard about plastic soup, ocean garbage patches and have seen staggering pictures on the internet. In this presentation an overview of this environmental problem will be given by Gertjan Grundlehner of Boskalis Dredging and Marine Experts. Starting from public information, you will get a feeling for the amounts of plastic in our seas, what is their risk to the marine environment, the physical challenges to get it out and how you can judge which solutions can make a difference and what their price tag will be.
