Plastic Odyssey is a 25 m long vessel that will be solely powered by plastics. The wastes will be harvested onshore during each call, then stored onboard, to finally be transformed into fuel and power the ship’s engines.
The vessel will achieve the rst round-the-world expedition using plastic waste as a fuel, to show that it’s too valuable to enter our oceans. Behind this challenge, a panel of open source plastic- recycling machines will be built and tested onboard. The expedition is an opportunity to face realities on the ground and adapt the solutions to local needs. These technologies will be spread all over the world to create jobs locally while cleaning up our environment.
