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.
