THE TAGUS INITIATIVE
The United Nation Department for Future Circular Economies is constructed to help invest in and manage the development of new and innovative circular systems. This led to the creation of the Tagus Initiative and the introduction of Phase One. Phase One, Purification of the Tagus, sees the deployment of a number of floating pavilions in the Tagus. Their main aim is to filter water and remove both solid and liquid waste from the river. With the completion of Phase One, Phase Two, The Creative Reassembly, tackle underdeveloped waste management infrastructure in the area of Almada through a focus on reuse and reassembly. The centre focuses on reuse before the heavy processing of recycling. Phase Three will implement a sustainable circular economy through aquaculture, which will reduce Portugal’s dependency on imported seafood by locally cultivating native fish and shellfish.
