Currently in conceptual phase, the Ocean Plastic Filter is a mass-scale waste removal infrastructure seeking to eliminate three billion pounds of river- generated ocean plastic annually, making it the world’s largest waste collection system under development to-date.
Proposed for initial implementation in the most polluting river in the world, the Yangtze River in China, The Ocean Plastic Filter has the potential to eliminate 20-40% of plastic waste from polluting our ocean.
We've partnered with different groups in The Philippines, Indonesia, and China who work with local teams in creating jobs for communities to collect ocean-bound plastic that can be upcycled into useful goods.
