What is this project about?
The industry is tackling plastic pollution with alternatives, but many of these create pollution themselves. In an attempt to address this problem, CitiComPlastic will co-create solutions for bioplastic waste management, and will do so, working at local level in Oslo (Norway) with vulnerable groups and other community members. Currently, no facilities for bioplastic waste management exist in Oslo, so there is a need for local solutions. Additionally, there is little understanding on how to properly dispose of bioplastic waste, and how it can be effectively biodegraded. Therefore, with the CitiComPlastic project, it is planned to set up a physical composting station for running experiments. Doing so, the aim is to raise awareness about bioplastic waste and how to handle it, demystify the science of composting, and narrow the distance between people and their trash.
