Plastic Odyssey is the first floating laboratory dedicated to plastic waste recycling and will use pyrolysis to convert some plastic to fuel, as well as acting as local recycling unit, showcasing waste reduction initiatives and promoting new thinking around plastic use.
Marlink will provide free Sealink VSAT connectivity and a package of innovative solutions including its Telemed remote healthcare service and global 4G roaming.
Plastic Odyssey aims to help reduce plastic pollution in the ocean and alleviate poverty at the same time. To achieve that, Plastic Odyssey is developing low-tech and open-source solutions to either turn plastic waste into a resource at a local scale or to reduce our global plastic footprint.
“At Marlink we share the aims and objectives of the Plastic Odyssey project. Pollution is not just a threat to the seas on which our customers depend; it threatens the future heath of our planet’s ecosystem. ” Erik Ceuppens, CEO, Marlink.
