The BIOGEARS Project is seeking stakeholder input and views for the potential implementation of biobased ropes in the European aquaculture sector.

BIOGEARS is an EASME EMFF funded project, under the Call Topic: EMFF-01-2018 Blue Labs: innovative solutions for maritime challenges. BIOGEARS aims to provide the European aquaculture sector with biobased, biodegradable ropes that are durable, marketable and fit-for-purpose, and hence have a highly reduced carbon footprint along the whole value chain.

Stakeholders are invited to contribute to the consultation and by doing so have their say on the implementation and opportunities for eco-friendly alternatives to conventional (non-biodegradable) aquaculture gears to be used in the aquaculture sector. This consultation should take no more than 10 minutes.
