Marine pollution

86% of water is contaminated by man made activity with large amounts of pollutants, solid waste, micro plastics and large carbon emissions. Marine pollution is a combination of chemicals and waste from man made activities with damage to the environment, the health of all organisms, and to economic structures worldwide. Most of this pollution comes from land sources - washed or blown into the ocean, but also from marine products.

Plastic Pollution

Many marine products are mostly plastic based, slowly degrading by natural forces into micro plastics that are released into the sea. Plastic pollution is a global environmental crisis that threatens ocean health, the health of marine species, food safety and quality, human health, coastal tourism, and contributes to climate change. There is an urgent need for efforts to reduce plastic consumption, improve waste management, and promote sustainable alternatives to safeguard the health of our oceans.

Hydrocarbons and Heavy Metals

Hydrocarbon and heavy metal pollution in the sea represent significant threats to marine ecosystems. Hydrocarbons, often originating from oil spills and industrial discharges, can have devastating effects on marine life. These pollutants can coat the surfaces of marine organisms, disrupting their respiratory and feeding mechanisms. Oil spills, in particular, can result in long-lasting damage to coastal habitats and harm fish, mammals, and seabirds. On the other hand, heavy metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium, primarily released through industrial processes and runoff, accumulate in marine sediments and organisms. These metals pose serious health risks to marine life and can enter the human food chain, impacting seafood safety. Effective measures to prevent and mitigate hydrocarbon and heavy metal pollution are crucial for preserving the health and biodiversity of our oceans.

Blue Economy

Clic Recycle's mission is to foster a sustainable and thriving blue economy. Our commitment revolves around implementing innovative solutions that prioritize environmental conservation while harnessing the vast potential of our oceans. Through responsible practices of waste reutilisation transformed into eco-friendly aquaculture methods, we aim to minimise waste and ecological footprint of our products. Our comprehensive approach not only supports the health of marine ecosystems but also contributes to the economic well-being of communities. By integrating cutting-edge technologies and environmentally conscious strategies, we strive to strike a harmonious balance between economic development and the preservation of our precious marine environment. Join us on the journey towards a resilient and sustainable blue economy, where environmental stewardship and economic prosperity coexist seamlessly.

Alternative Solutions

CLIC SEA - With a waste utilisation program transforming waste into products and solutions to decarbonise the planet. Our mission is to create products that balance economic growth with environmental sustainability and support the vital role that oceans play in life on Earth. Our Sea Decontamination solutions are a development of eco-friendly technologies to ensure the long-term health of marine ecosystems. Through our waste management system we collect human hair waste, an abundant regenerative resource with natural qualities of absorption and transform it into eco design solutions.

Modular system of Decontamination Barriers and Filters for Ports and Harbours - A system of modular decontamination barriers and filters made from organic materials that naturally absorb and remove hydrocarbons and heavy metals from the sea. Modular solution made to suit both small and large ports and harbours.

This is an organic eco alternative that can eliminate the use of polypropylene that are used in existing products. Embedded with a sensor system collecting and tracking essential water quality data and a digital platform with economic and environmental impact analysis it offers users a view of efficiency and economic and environmental impact of the product.
