For a more "free" sea ...

Water covers nearly three-quarters of the earth's surface...

Yet, when the alarm is sounded for the planet, too little is said about the sea as a vital resource and too little is done to safeguard an ecosystem threatened by pollution. The "Nurforsea" was conceived to save the sea from household and restaurant waste cooking oil  

Edible oils are not biodegradable waste, if disposed of inappropriately, they damage household drains, and continuing into the sewers, they pollute the entire supply chain from groundwater to the seas.

For this very reason, it was decided to invest and engage around this waste fraction, which is so little known and has never been given the proper importance. It was chosen to reach this goal through the Project "Nurforsea", developed by Nur International srl.

To make the right contribution to the important aspect of environmental sustainability, the Project "Nurforsea" has chosen as its symbol the "Penguin", a marine mammal with great intelligence and sensitivity, an example for humanity.

Therefore, it becomes incumbent to supplement household collection of waste oil with models that can incentivize and facilitate management in the home environment, using small containers that can be reused countless times, with organized door-to-door service or collection points in immediate proximity.


We must allow our "Penguin" and all marine fauna and flora to be preserved from this pollutant, seemingly harmless because it is used for human food, but its release into the environment or into our drains becomes a poison to our eco systems.


The call to action for the citizen who is called upon to contribute to the preservation of the sea, becomes the active protagonist of our project, committing to collect used vegetable oil, as well as most businesses already do, raise awareness to perform daily actions by everyone, for the defense of the environment, it is the task of our project to organize the collection systems and disseminate correct information, because every action generates consequences.

For this reason, the collection of used oil is expected to be organized in different ways between the two supply chains: the first dedicated to the collection of used vegetable oils from households and the optimization of the supply chain of used oils from different commercial activities, through an innovative collection system, recognized as "Best Practice" by ENEA.

Collection for the domestic supply chain would take place through a system of coordination among the different territorial management entities in order to be able to activate timely collection, with measurement tools that allow for economic benefits, all of which is possible with the waste traceability system and user traceability.

The system provides for the classic "empty for full" service, which is on the market to date the methodology with the least environmental impact, because it allows the delivery without producing additional waste, the container washing system provides for the recovery of residuals, to put the same reclaimed container back into the circuit without any waste.

The verification system uses "NFC" technology, as it allows us to guarantee the provenance and thus the user, who will be entered into the reward system for his or her efforts to protect the environment, because we need to know that everything we take to recovery becomes an economic resource, commercial value.

A similar reward system will be applied to the collection chain for commercial users, who will dispose of waste through a parallel chain but managed by the same "empty-for-full" system organized by the same coordination that we have provided for household collection.

"When you fry or open the can of tuna or pickles what do you do with the oil? These edible oils should not be poured down the household drains, but collected!!!" in the bin, and sent for recovery through the "empty-for-full" system, for the "Penguin" , for the sea, for all of us, to build a sustainable future together.

The communication and awareness plan includes extensive and continuous information in the territories, starting from the presentation press conference with appropriate publicity campaign, to public meetings, both during the start-up phase and afterwards, organize training and awareness meetings with the public.

The pathway is completed with a Citizen's Guide for ii; an information leaflet available to users with information on how the service works. The Project involves the inclusion in the school curriculum of schools (primary and secondary) of training and awareness workshops, will have available the

"Handbook of the Good Ecologist", in which the "Penguin" through simple and straightforward infographics explains to children the rules for proper recycling collection and good standards for a future citizen. Students will also participate inicompetitions with prizes organized on environmental issues.
