The Spanish engineering company Satlink has announced its initiative to remove 100,000 kg of plastic from abandoned networks in the waters of Chile, in collaboration with the NGO World Animal Protection.
On the same day that the European Commission has proposed a new directive to deal with marine litter, Satlink, a Spanish engineering company specializing in satellite telecommunications, has announced its initiative to remove 100,000 kg of plastic from abandoned networks in the waters of Chile, in collaboration with the NGO World Animal Protection.
This action implies not only the transformation of the material collected in new products but also the creation of jobs in local populations.
Satlink has made this announcement at the world conference of the tuna industry -Tuna 2018-Infofish World Tuna Conference- held this week in Bangkok (Thailand). In this meeting, the most important in the world for the tuna sector, the company shows its technological developments aimed at this industry and its impact on the sustainability and transparency of this fishery.
Among these developments, its latest generation of satellite-connected buoys stands out, in which the company has made special emphasis on the drastic reduction of its environmental impact in terms of the use of materials, circuits, energy systems or more efficient and sustainable design.
