With the plastoformer and my Greening Plastic Project at the Plastic Soup Stand during the Deltares Open Day last saturday, to celebrate 10 years Deltares and as participation to the science week.
There was a lot of interest in the Plastic Soup Stand. Everybody is concerned about our #plasticwaste
and they're all interested to both learn more about it and how Deltares is involved. In our stand we tried to represent the breadth of Deltares' work with #plastic
: from lab experiments on degradation and impact on life; through models of how it flows through our rivers bays and oceans; to physical model-experiments in our flumes and basins; to - finally - solutions such as the Plastoformer and drip irrigation.
DMS was not the only partner in the stand. #Allseas
and the #Bubblebarrier
were there too (on Friday), allowing us to exchange knowledge and information. .
It was a lot of fun and very interesting to hear all the experiences of people who came to visit us. .
The questions I got most frequent were: Did you also do research for Boyan Slat - answer: yes, we did both research in a basin and some modelling work for him.
And:Do you know what Boyan Slat of the #oceancleanup
will do with the plastic he'll collect? - answer: no, I don't know, but no doubt he will have it recycled.
If you have questions about Deltares and the #plasticsoup
, don't hesitate to reach out or leave a comment.
