LEITAT @ Kick-off meeting of LIFE+ project – MERMAIDS


LEITAT with all the partners of the MERMAIDS project have met at the Italian National Research Council (CNR) in Pozzuoli (Italy) during the 30th and 31th of July 2014 at the occasion of the project kick-off meeting.


The multidisciplinary consortium of the MERMAID project, untitled “Mitigation of microplastics impact caused by textile washing processes”, is aiming to mitigate the impact caused by micro and/or nanoplastic particles resulting from laundry waste water on European seas’ ecosystems, by demonstrating and implementing innovative technologies and additives for laundry processes and textile finishing treatments. MERMAIDS will reduce at least 70% of the total amount of microplastic fibres that is currently discharged in laundry waste water.
