A state-of-the-art educational and environmental facility to open in Norway
The scientific and educational center will spread the word about the latest trends in the development and wider use of safer environment-friendly technologies, thus providing effective and money-saving solutions for a better conservation of natural oil and, more generally, marine resources. The center will work along with qualified professionals and environmental institutions to constantly raise public awareness of the most viable up-to-date approaches to reduce sea pollution, preserve natural oil quality, and quite importantly, handle the plastic waste thrown out into the water.
In her statement, Erna Solberg, the country’s Prime Minister, reminded that the sea resources are of vital importance to the economy both nationally and globally, and highly praised the project’s environmental potential in the long run. Additionally, in the words of Ketil Solvik-Olsen, Norway’s Minister of Transport, the initiative will undoubtedly have a strong beneficial impact on the further evolution of the nation’s policy regarding the preservation of oil and fighting sea pollution.
