System 002 has led us to proof of technology, which we announced in October 2021. While continuing to harvest plastic with System 002, we will start developing System 03, a larger design that is meant to serve as the blueprint for scale-up. We will need a full fleet of about 10 of these cleanup systems in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch to effectively clean it up. After having scaled up in this patch, we move on to the other four patches: the South Pacific, the North Atlantic, the South Atlantic, and the Indian Oceanic Gyre.
In the run-up to full-scale deployment, we welcome funders to contribute to having a major impact on our mission to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Ocean systems are not available for purchase, but those who are interested in participating in the cleanup can sponsor our ocean cleanup systems.
