so, chase for productive needs and cleanliness rather than chasing Pokémon!
Plastic was invented to improve life and fight deforestation. The consumption of plastic has become the basic necessity for humans in daily life however, and at the same time, the biggest threats to human civilization and natural ecosystems on our planet. And the rising threat may become the cause for this generation to be the last one. This has to be prevented at all costs and something must be done against this problem. Firm and steady actions are needed to be taken before it’s too late. Plastics don’t belong in the ocean and industries thankfully do invest in recycling and new recovery technologies and helping people learn to recycle so that every product is put to its highest and best use.
OceanPlastik is an impact startup company that wants to create an ecosystem that will provide polished up plastic waste a real value proposition. OceanPlastik has come up with a way to engage people with a smartphone to help in this initiative by localizing and cleaning plastic waste from the environment. OceanPlastik has a goal of cleaning and recycling millions of kilos of plastic waste by using a combination of mobile and decentralized technologies and create global awareness about this problem with the means of a unique ecosystem.
OceanPlastik adapts all of its activities from the Sustainable Development Goals that were summed up by the United Nations. The United Nations have done so to achieve a better and sustainable future for all living beings. These goals refer to the global challenges that humans and other living beings face equally, today, that are poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, peace, and justice and the company proudly adapts 15 out of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
From January 2020 OceanPlastik intends on starting to develop this ecosystem which is based on a mobile app named PTAGGER. PTAGGER is an app similar to Pokémon Go. The difference is that, instead of tagging and locating Pokémon, people can tag, localize, collect and drop off plastic waste and automatically earn exchangeable crypto tokens. From November/December onwards OceanPlastic wants to launch this in Bali (Indonesia) and expand in other regions/countries that are heavily affected by plastic pollution.
What does OceanPlastik do? The interesting part about OceanPlastik is that they intend on persuading people to chase for productive needs and cleanliness rather than chasing Pokémon.
The OceanPlastik ecosystem operates on a planned structure. It is based on a series of activities that involve, to tag, localize, collect, drop off and recycle plastic waste. These activities are going to be carried out by using new and disruptive technologies. By the use of these technologies, OceanPlastik will be able to manufacture new products that will be made out of recycled plastic waste. The products manufactured will be durable and the recycled plastic will probably be from the plastic found in the oceans and other water bodies.
creating awareness, educating people, and creating jobs
The main focus is on cleaning up and recycling as much plastic waste as possible along with creating awareness, educating people, and creating jobs. This will be achieved by wproviding cleaned up and recycled plastic with a realistic value proposition.
What about the non-recyclable plastic waste? The non-recyclable plastic waste will be processed with the help of the WASTX P1000 and the end product will be consumable fuel and electricity. This machinery is from OceanPlastik’s strategic partner BioFabrik which deals in sustainable plastic recycling.
Each unit that houses the WASTX P1000 machines, can process around 1,000 kilograms of plastic waste in a day which will be converted into 1,000 liters of fuel approximately, processed and fit for consumption. A single WASTX P1000 unit can deliver energy for up to 150 single-family homes. The electricity and fuel generated by the Biofabrik WASTX P1000 units will also be used to power their own managed recycling and production centers. These generated products can be sold to generate electricity to connected energy providers.
The Current Ecosystem: The lifestyle carried out by the modern world would not be possible without plastic. Unfortunately, over time the control over this great invention has been completely lost. Plastic now happens to threaten the lives and health of almost every creature on the beautiful planet. OceanPlastik, a new impact startup company is focused on cleaning up and recycling plastic waste with the use of exclusive technologies. By providing cleaned up and recycled plastic with a real value proposition, they are progressing on being able to engage people in being a part of the cleanup process by simply using their smartphones.
Many large-scale companies that are co-responsible for pollution, plastic pollution, in particular, are now trying to adapt to an economic system with closed loops which aims at eliminating waste and the continual use of available resources.
Why smartphone users? With the increasing usage of smartphones, it is very easy to engage people in activities that involve the use of smartphones. A smartphone holder can download PTAGGER, a free mobile app (for iOS and Android smartphones). By using the PTAGGER app the user will be able to tag, locate and clean up plastic waste. OceanPlastik aims at cleaning and collecting a calculated total of 50 million kilos of plastic waste sourced through the ecosystem. This recycled plastic will be converted into durable plastic ware, fuel, and electricity and reach an estimated 13.5 million active users within a span of 4 years.
The process in the PTAGGER app is based on some main steps:
- Tag & Localize
- Drop off
- Collection points
- Recycling centers
We are the last generation to solve this
How much plastic? From the year 1950, the world produced only 2 million tons per year. As the years passed, by 2015, the annual plastic production had increased by nearly 200 times, which reached around 380 million tons. Over the period from 1950 to 2015, plastic production reached approximately 7.8 billion tons of plastic which is more than one ton of plastic per person alive today. Many plastic types are defined as non-degradable, meaning that they fail to decompose or take a lot of time to decompose. This plastic is instead broken down into smaller particles. Materials that are regarded as non-degradable can slowly break down through photo degradation.
