In the Khabarovsk Territory will be an international project on the research of garbage

16-18 September in the Soviet-Havana and Vaninsky districts of the Khabarovsk Territory will be a large-scale study of garbage thrown out by the waves on the sea coast. The annual event is one of the environmental projects of the Association of Regional Administrations of Northeast Asia (ARASVA) and makes it possible to assess the degree of pollution of the seas, the press service of the regional administration said.

“Waste collection and analysis is carried out according to a unified method in all regions participating in the Association. First of all, we look at its amount and composition - in particular, how the amount of plastic, glass, polyethylene and other waste changes in percentage terms. It is often possible to analyze even the origin of the garbage - all you need to do is look at the remaining labels, ”said Elena Golubeva, Deputy Head of the Department of Environmental Expertise and Standardization of the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Territory.

All received data are sent to the "Center for Environmental Cooperation of the Sea of ​​Japan Region Countries" in Toyama (Japan), where they are also analyzed and published.

The study of garbage emitted by the waves on the seacoast has been carried out by ARASVA participants for more than 10 years. According to Elena Golubeva, the amount of waste transported by the sea to the shores of the Khabarovsk Territory, every year becomes less.
