HOW DOES THE PLATFORM'S PRINCIPLE WORK?
Calming the currents
Fast-moving ocean currents drag floating plastic particles as deep as 30 metres beneath the water’s surface, even though plastic is lighter than water and should (in slower currents) float on the surface.
Compared to water, plastic has a lower density. This is the characteristic that was put to use in the development of this platform. The bulbous shape of PGS and its underwater canals calm the water currents, allowing the plastic to rise to the surface using its own natural draft, where it can be easily collected. Nets or other filtration systems that put marine life at risk are no longer required.
Our vision: A responsible society for healthy oceans
Our mission: To clean rivers and protect the sea from plastic waste through technological innovation and ecological inspiration towards a sustainable future
