Technology input

Our engineering team is working hard on developing our first cleanup system, to be deployed in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in mid-2018.

As what we aim to build has never been built before, a crucial part of our engineering process is to constantly question our design, trying to "poke holes" and to test our assumptions wherever possible. We always look for ways to improve.

On top of having a team of creative thinkers as well as a network of external advisors constantly seeking for improvements, we often receive useful input on social media and through our contact form. Therefore, we wanted to make it easier for you to give input. If you are an engineer, a researcher, a student or simply an innovative mind, your ideas could help clean the oceans.
