RBR - Reviving Baltic Resilience

Project title
RBR - Reviving Baltic Resilience
Project description
The Baltic Sea faces challenges due to a surplus of phosphorus, nitrogen and pollutants (by being one of the busiest maritime areas in the world). The ongoing threat of a diminishing biodiversity and increased eutrophication (mainly due to NH3, NO?, PO4) is most likely the biggest challenge that the region currently faces from an environmental perspective. In addition to this, there has been a recent increase in awareness of the amounts of microplastics, up to 40 tonnes annually, being released to the Baltic Sea and the consequences these particles have on the maritime environment. The future project would like to address these issues.
