The Sustainable Capacity building to reduce Irreversible Pollution by plastics (SCIP Plastics) project aims at the sustainable transformation of municipal waste management systems in the Ganges Delta regarding plastic abatement strategies as well as demand -and resource- oriented collection and disposal in order to prevent large-scale environmental pollution at its source (outcome). The topic is being addressed in five different working groups. The overall project objective is the long-term establishment of a Knowledge Transfer Hub on the campus of the Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET) for the reduction and preventing of marine plastic debris in the Bay of Bengal. The HUB integrates a waste management laboratory (WasteLab) and an inner-city Awareness Center.
