Ocean Plastics Recovery with Closed Loop, Waste Management Approach with remote controlled and automated vessels and systems.
by Oceanamatica (Non-governmental organization (NGO))
Our program is a closed loop, waste management approach to ocena plastics. We recover ocean plastics and reprocess them at sea, to return the plastics to industries. This saves energy and reduces pollution, by not converting plastics to fuel, but to retain that stored energy (stored liquid carbons) for use in other products. As a mobile operational unit, consisting of ocean cleaning vessels, a base ship, and remote operated drone, we recover macro and micro plastics.
Progress reports

December 2019
Recovery of 20,000 metric tons of ocean plastics
February 2019
Recovery of 60 metric tons of ocean plastics
