The Ocean Clean Up The largest clean up in history. WE DEVELOP ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES TO RID THE OCEANS OF PLASTICEvery year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, of which the majority spills out from rivers. A portion of this plastic travels to ocean garbage patches, getting caught in a vortex of circulating currents. If no action is taken, the plastic will increasingly impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. WE AIM TO CLEAN UP 90% OF OCEAN PLASTIC POLLUTIONTo achieve this objective, we have to work on a combination of closing the source and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean and doesn’t go away by itself.
