Welcome to the Ocean Plastic Forum site!

The Ocean Plastic Forum is a partner and member organization working towards developing technologies and business models for collecting plastic from the ocean, rivers, sea shores, harbours and waters globally.

The aim is to improve the environment in the aquatic sphere and along the shores by recovering the plastic. The aim is also to cycle the recovered plastic as high as possible in the value chain with the largest possible plastic quantities recycled into new products, alternatively technologies that convert the plastic so it can be recycled in the form of monomer recovery / new polymers.

About

Plastic can be a valuable resource for recycling as for example demonstrated by our collection effort via volunteers along the western coast of Jutland and subsequent production of plastic products such as recreational furniture.

In 2017 several Danish organizations, companies and research institutions joined forces within such a partnership labelled the Ocean Plastic Forum. Partners are a present five industry associations, six companies, three universities and two NGO´s operating within one legal frame.

The purpose of the partnership is to gather different plastic litter contractors and partners in the solving of small as well as large turnkey projects. The consortium creates a greater synergy by utilizing the different disciplines of the members as well as making the schedule smooth by considering the various peaks of the production and services of the member companies. Partners have contacts in amongst other Indonesia and India within local companies and port&waste authorities.

Project references by the partners include the collection and recycling of plastic waste found along the beaches of the North Sea, studies of plastic waste problems in Indonesia, collection of plastic waste in Indian rivers, as well as full-scale demo projects in the North Sea.

Members of the Ocean Plastic Forum decide on a case-by-case basis to get involved as subcontractors – and will be headed by a main contractor.
