Ocean Plastics Harvester

This unique, patented, ocean-cleaning solution can move without fuel into or against wave direction and sideways. . Remote-controlled. Very survivable.

Cleaning our Oceans and keeping them clean

“Statistics outlining the problem include: 150 to 200 MILLION TONNES of plastic debris in our oceans: 8 to 10 million tonnes enter the oceans every year – GROWING: a plastic bottle takes up to 450 YEARS to degrade in the ocean: plastic kills more than a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals yearly. Worst of all, plastics particles are confirmed to have widely entered the human food-chain.

No one knows exactly how much plastic is currently in the ocean today, but best estimates place the amount around 150 million tons. If we continue with business as usual

By 2025 the amount will increase to the point that for every three tons of fish in the sea there will be one ton of plastic. By 2050, the ratio will be one to one [1][2]. To look at this a different way: total marine capture (total amount of seafood harvested) in 2014 was estimated at roughly 82 million tons of fish [4]. This would imply that for every ten tons of fish that we harvest each year, we replace it with one ton of plastic bottles and wrappers.

5 Main Ocean Waste 'Gyres'

Much of the waste gathers in the 5 main ocean waste ’gyres’’

Efforts are being made to reduce this pollution at source, but no practical economic solution has been found to clean the gyres, which are still growing, Nobody can say with any certainty how much waste they contain and up to 50% of it is dumped fishing gear. This problem must be solved: now it CAN be. The oceans comprise 70% of the world surface and 90% of our habitat. Now that dramatically low-cost cleaning is arrived, all our oceans can be continuously cleaned.
