Removal of macro-waste
Plastic pollution is everywhere, and is constantly increasing in the four corners of the globe. Faced with this problem of general interest, initiatives to clean up macro-waste are multiplying and THOMSEA is actively involved in this fight.
The THOMSEA trawl, coupled with the know-how of the fishermen, is the ultimate weapon against this environmental disaster. It adapts very well to the collection of various floating macro-waste, changing only the mesh size of the net. The versatility and efficiency of its trawls have been proven in several partnerships.
With Waste Free Oceans, a worldwide association for the collection and processing of plastic waste, THOMSEA has already equipped many European countries. THOMSEA also provides pollution clean-up training for local seafarers.
In some African countries, trawls also have a social role to play. They help fishermen to diversify their profession by developing a new economy around the collection of this waste.
Thanks to competent partners in the recovery of this waste, they can make a profit from its resale.
The fishermen benefit, as does nature.
Collecting, recycling, transforming: an essential cycle nowadays.
In order to guarantee the sustainability of our flora and fauna, THOMSEA is committed to this worldwide mission every day.
With a flotilla on each of the three sea fronts, France is the pilot country, showing the way to protecting Europe's coasts.
