Geographic INSPIRE implementations

European rivers are the first collectors of waste and are anticipated to be the main cause of transportation of plastics and microplastics from inland towards the sea.

Therefore, it is of crucial importance not only to clean the rivers but also to prevent plastic pollutants from entering the river to protect terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems.

A set of 20 technologies and actions were identified and brought together to meet the needs for the holistic approach in removing litter, plastics & microplastics at 8 use cases from 6 rivers by detection, collection and prevention. The INSPIRE use cases focus on 6 demo river sites and 2 prevention sites.
