ocean cleanup

Described as one of the most ambitious engineering projects of this generation the goal of the The Ocean Clean-Up is to collect 90% of floating ocean plastic pollution.  The concept of deploying booms mid-ocean and channelling garbage for collection belongs to Boyan Slat who was still a teenager when he devised the system.

Blue Marine Foundation (BLUE) exists to restore healthy oceans. Its focus is combatting overfishing by creating marine reserves, establishing new models of sustainable fishing and restoring marine habitats.


Supporting the development of ocean technologies with conservation and research applications Schmidt Marine Technology Partners describes their work as “venture philanthropy”. It is intended to fill the gap in support available for the development of eco-friendly ocean technologies. Their current focus is on ocean sensors, coral reef health, reducing marine plastic pollution, advancing ocean research and finding innovative ways to address illegal fishing.
