The Baltic Sea will be recovered by everyday choices and environmental technology
The authorities and researches have been working for years to recover the Baltic Sea. The regional levels must also be activated to practical operation. The toolkit for the best practices will be opened on 23 May 2018 in the WATERCHAIN seminar in Tallinn. You can participate in the seminar also online. Register yourself!
The final seminar is free of charge and open for everyone. You can participate in the seminar also from your own computer as a webinar.
To receive the link to participate, register yourself no later than Friday 18 May.
The toolkit is aimed at everyone living in the Baltic Sea region. For an ordinary consumer it includes tried and found operational models to help with everyday choices.
In the toolkit models for an ordinary citizen and for a more powerful occupational need
On a larger scale it offers e.g. a selection tool for the utilization of technologies reducing the environmental pollution load in agriculture and sewage plants. The tool assists in decision-making also otherwise: modelling the discharges of emissions saves in expensive analyzing costs and illustrates effectively the point sources of pollution.
The toolkit at: waterchain.eu (opens on Wed morning 23 May).
The technological know-how of nutrient removal, piloted already earlier in the Eurajoki basin, has been introduced in Latvia. The technology has also been further developed as an international cooperation with the Estonian and Latvian partners. A video of building a filter can be found at YouTube.
The amount of nutrients and hazardous substances ending up in the Baltic Sea is reduced in the international Waterchain project, coordinated by SAMK’s research group WANDER Nordic Water and Materials Institute, with the help of environmental technologies and awareness raising. In the final seminar the essential results will be presented, and a discussion conducted on how to continue the work.
The seminar is a part of the WATERCHAIN project funded by the Central Baltic. The research has taken place in the pilot watersheds in Finland, Sweden, Åland, Estonia and Latvia. The pilot watersheds in Finland have been Eurajoki and Aurajoki in the southwestern Finland. The Internet pages for Central Baltic Waterchain:http://waterchain.samk.fi
