The circular economy rethinks the production process and contributes to the understanding and implementation of the concept of sustainability from innovation to circular business models, sharing, circularity design, reuse, remanufacturing and others, many values and opportunities are created. Added to the project, the importance of Environmental Education in the construction of values of citizenship in its broadest concept.
Method State assessment and selection of priority areas for removal of plastics and environmental education classes.
In situ surveys and visits with the production of a photographic collection and preparation of scripts and interviews, together with partners AMORPEZ and Fishermen Colony Z 7. On-site characterization of the selected areas. Plotting based on maps, dimensioning and demarcating the removal of plastics areas, where the access to the area and the production estimate for sizing the recycling plant are also defined. Preparation of the recycled material production area. The area will be adapted at AMORPEZ headquarters to receive the equipment. Following the relative technical procedures, the attributes of the collected material, day and time, and meteorological data for publication of articles are recorded at each collection site. Maintenance and monitoring: preparation of specific forms for these procedures, as well as the definition of inspection scales, in addition to control over collected and processed quantities.
