Our solution to plastic pollution

It is clear that an efficient grand-scale clean-up of the oceans is unrealistic. Treating plastic waste before it ends up in the water is a necessity. Our objective is therefore to give plastic waste a value through an innovative technology that transforms plastic into energy.
This approach, based on social entrepreneurship, creates job particularly for the underprivileged. The process of energy production also has substantial environmental benefits by significantly reducing plastic pollution.

Follow our crew on the Odyssey blog.

In April 2017, Race for Water embarked on a second oceanic tour with its project, the Odyssey of Hope. On board a very special boat, an integrated mixed solar-hydrogen-kite-powered vessel, the Foundation team wants to demonstrate that energy transition is happening now, and that solutions do exist to protect our oceans from anthropogenic pollution.
