CircularSeas aims at promoting the Green Economy by encouraging the development of eco-innovative or green products, parts and components for the Maritime Industries. The strategy is a combination of the Circular Economy Principles, with the use of Ocean Plastic Waste as a means to develop new green materials and the introduction of new greener materials, and the uptake of an advanced manufacturing technology, 3D printing, which is flexible enough to adapt to the manufacturing conditions required for new eco-innovative small and medium parts and components. The target maritime industries are fishing, auxiliary fishing and aquaculture, shipyard and port management and nautical sports.
