Korea was the only country in the world that allowed indiscriminate waste dumping into the seas by 2016. Moreover, the largest amount of styrofoam used in aquaculture, which cannot be reused or recycled, is dumped into the ocean after use. Added to these, the wastes discharged from estuaries over the world, including China and East-South Asia region, are one of our serious concerns.
Up-cycling, which adds values to the wastes, will become one of major driving forces for marine cleanup activities through collection of marine litters. Foresys is preparing related patents register, and collaborative upcycling projects with domestic and international organizations and groups.
