Approximately 80% of marine debris originates from land-based sources and 90% of marine debris is comprised of plastic materials. This conference focuses on understanding the contribution of land-based sources to the impacts, composition, and distribution of marine debris in the world's oceans. Sessions will focus on reducing the contributions of trash and debris caused by littering, proliferating waste generation, and industrial discharges from plastic manufacturing and resin transport. The wide array of local an international speakers will provide a diversity of perspectives on the research and policies needed to solve these problems. This conference will provide an update on the latest storm water and solid waste management techniques and invite participants to join together in problem-solving dialogues oriented to collaborations between industry, government and the environmental community.
