System 002 / "Jenny"

To succeed in our mission, we need a cleanup technology that not only captures plastic but whose design and operation are suited for growth into a global fleet. System 001/B (2019), achieved a relative speed difference that resulted in effective collection and retention of plastic. However, in order to achieve a goal of 90% reduction of floating ocean plastic by 2040, its parachute sea anchor design would require us to deploy hundreds of systems. To us, this is unfeasible, so we continued to advance our research and design. With a persistent problem that grows worse by the day, there is an urgency to reduce pollution as quickly as possible.

System 002 Test Plan

The System 002 test campaign in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will take place over the course of 12 weeks. If the trials are successful, we have the option to remain in the patch to gather more insights and harvest more plastic.
