Tonnes of Rubbish in our Oceans this year

The Ocean 5 system is a key solution to many of these growing problems facing our planet.

It is our mission to make available this system to private organisations, governments and charities in order to clean our oceans, and in doing so, providing clean drinking water and clean sustainable energy

Ocean 5

Our unique Ocean 5 system processes waste plastic to generate desalinated water (to EU drinking standards) and clean energy. This unit will reduce the current issues surrounding us by combusting waste plastic from our beaches and oceans to produce the energy to run desalination plants and/or create electricity for national supply. The technology used to combust the waste material produces extremely low emissions and near zero fly ash.

How long until it's gone?Estimated decomposition rates of our ocean rubbish.

Great Pacific garbage patch


The Great Pacific garbage patch is a gyre of marine debris particles in the central North Pacific Ocean. It is known for being the largest accumulation of ocean plastic in the world.


It is estimated that between 4.8- 12.7 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans each year, killing and harming marine life. Travelling on ocean currents, this plastic is then concentrated in 5 areas of the world known as the world’s “ocean garbage patches”. Once in these patches, the plastic will not go away by itself.


Many organisations are working tirelessly to clean our oceans but do not have the technology to process such large amounts of rubbish. Project Ocean can offer a solution to prevent the rubbish from ever returning back to our seas.
