• Classical water quality monitoring by sampling is costly and generates a lot of carbon dioxide emissions

  • Poor water quality due to anthropogenic stress and coastal urbanization causes damage to the blue economy

  • Sustainable and scalable monitoring of eutrophication levels is becoming more difficult due to climate change

  • Data for coastal waters are limited

Societal impact

“Today, coastal waters are the areas where the most extensive blue economy activities take place and are under greatest anthropogenic stress. Rising eutrophication levels, degradation of biodiversity, and harmful algal blooms are just some of the main issues. To meet the ambitious criteria set by EU Commission within The Water Framework Directive, and the European Green Deal, scalable digital solutions for water quality monitoring with low carbon emissions are necessary.” – Dr. Mario Špadina, SeaCras CEO
