Session: PLASTICS AND CIRCULAR ECONOMY IN MUSSEL FARMING: POTENTIAL AND INNOVATION

Speech: Pyrolysis and energy generation from mollusk farming waste

Marine litter has significant impacts on the sea, affecting the environment, the people living onto and around it and the economy based on its ecosystem services. Existing practices on cleaning marine litter focus on the collection of the items, which then enter the normal waste disposal route. However, marine litter might be heavily contaminated and command significant disposal fees, hence alternative solutions such as on site thermal treatment with energy recovery. IRIS has patented a small scale pyrolyser that gasifies plastic waste to generate an exploitable syngas and that is suitable for application on board vessels or at ports.
