During the POLAR2018 conference in Davos, the EPB held a workshop for its Members titled Minimising plastic use and waste in polar research and logistics.
The workshop explore possible ways in which plastic use and waste could potentially be reduced in four areas of polar research and logistics:
Logistics (packing, biosecurity, transport, etc.)
Scientific equipment and consumables (field and lab)
Field equipment (clothing, camping gear, food, safety, etc.)
Domestic (catering, cleaning, medical, personal, etc.)
A report from the workshop, including recommendations from participants is available here.
