The target water area of the project is specially selected in view of its objectives and covers the shores of the Black Sea, falling within the territorial scope of the municipality of Pomorie; Aheloy River, flowing into the Black Sea on the territory of Pomorie Municipality and The Pomorie Lake.
As a result of an initial assessment of the state of the marine environment on the territory of the Bulgarian Black Sea area, marine litter has been identified, including: plastic bags, household plastics, industrial metal scrap, abandoned gillnets, scrap metal from ships and car tires (rubber waste), etc. The project affects those of the listed wastes that have the ability to float on the water surface, which are intended to be collected by special high-tech water drones and taken outside the relevant target area of the project.
This project proposal completes the measures envisaged in the Marine Strategy for Environmental Protection in the Marine Waters of the Republic of Bulgaria.
