The Sea Cleaners: an autonomous ship to collect plastic waste

On the occasion of our French-Norwegian Forum: Sustainable Future to be held on the 19th of September in Oslo, the association The Sea Cleaners will be presenting its giant ship to clean oceans: the Manta.

Ocean plastic pollution is a global ecological disaster! Nearly 9 million tons of plastics are dumped each year in the ocean, nearly 300 kg per second.

Yvan Bourgnon often, during his transoceanic races struck unidentified floating objects. Confronted brutally with ocean pollution during his recent solo World Tour on a sports catamaran, he decided to act by creating the association The Sea Cleaners and the design of a giant ship to collect plastic waste: The Manta. With an onboard factory to collect in mass, this clean and autonomous ship will collect, sort and compact at sea a large quantity of floating plastic macro-waste, before it degrades the environment durably.

Discover more about this project during our French-Norwegian Forum on Sustainable Future, 19 september, Oslo.

The representatives from the Sea Cleaners will also be present during the matchmaking session to be held at BI Norwegian Business School on the 20th of September in Oslo.
