Milestones

By systematically eliminating technical risks through rapid iterations, we aim to reach full-scale deployment in both rivers and oceans. Our ultimate goal is to clean up 90% of the world’s floating ocean plastic by 2040.

The future
  • Today - 2025
    Scale-up in Rivers
  • Beyond System 003
    Scale-up in oceans
The present
  • 2021
    System 002

    System 002

    After successful trials in 2021, System 002 has proven our ocean cleanup technology works, and we will continue to harvest more plastic in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch until the completion of System 003. Follow our progress here.
