About the network
MRC (Marine Recycling Cluster) was established in 2016 and is a part of Innovation Norway’s Innovation Cluster Program. MRC consists of 35 cooperating companies within a wide range of operations, from drone surveillance and marine bio-research to clean-up operations and waste processing. We are developing a complete value chain within marine debris mapping and analysing, clean-up and waste handling as well as handling of discarded fishing gear. The cluster is also working together to find new and better solutions for keeping our oceans free from marine litter with innovations throughout the whole value chain. We partner with maritime and environment authorities, different types of organizations and private companies – in Norway and abroad.
The goal of MRC
MRC works to develop a complete value chain within professional marine waste mapping, clean-up and handling.
