EMERITUS – Environmental crimes’ intelligence and investigation protocol based on multiple data resources

The EMERITUS project started with the aim of laying the foundations for a new generation of technological tools, orchestrated through a platform at the service of law enforcement authorities and border guards, to improve detection and evidence-gathering capabilities for waste-related environmental crime.

Environmental violations, such as discharging substances into the air, water and soil, as well as trafficking in hazardous waste and materials, have an enormous impact on the climate, human health and the environment.

Cetaqua will develop solutions for the detection of discharges into bodies of water. The development will provide a system based on commercial sensors and image analysis to allow early detection of discharges and estimate both their origin and the time they will take to reach a possible protected area.
