Our unique research is dependent on your help. At the time of writing we are the only organization in the world that is developing a system to remove micro plastics from the open ocean. We have published a 10 year plan, the first year of which is most of the R&D on the micro plastic separation system for which we need to raise around $1.1 million dollars to cover an estimate 12 months of development testing. This development cannot begin until we have reached at least half of this target figure to be able to provide a level of security to our research staff.
Our ocean cleaning ships have three stages of filtration, where the final stage identifies and protects micro organisms, only removing micro plastics. In addition, a final check on the water being returned to the sea confirms to a SeaVax vessel and command HQ as to the efficiency of filtration of each SeaVax asset deployed.
We also attend events to show our work and increase awareness of the plastic issue, including updating world leaders in the hope of creating a World Ocean Anti-Plastic Alliance to replace the Global Ocean Commission that faded into obscurity a few years ago.
We are not eligible for UK Government or European Union Horizon 2020 or similar calls for research proposals because of our charitable status and non-trading requirement for registration. You can read more about why concerns such as ours are effectively barred from European Commission funding here. We do not make the rules and we have raised our concerns with the G20 and the appropriate European Commissioners. We need people powered research to stand in where governments fear to tread.
