Crowdfunding since 2010

We want to save the seas - we want seas without plastic! For that purpose, we have come up with a revolutionary concept!

Our revolutionary idea: PGS - Pacific Garbage Screening! A floating platform, with special structural properties that allow for the filtering of plastic and plastic particles from the water. The platform functions without the use of nets - fish and other marine life are not endangered. Our aim is not to burn the plastic debris collected, but to use it as a value-adding resource - for example, by converting it into energy or using it to create biodegradable materials.
Funding period

This is our seed capital to get off to a flying start. To create jobs, to realize ideas, to conduct model experiments, to form partnerships- to save the oceans!
