Upcycling the Oceans
The vast complexity and the great challenge that this project faces lies in the low and inconsistent quality of the debris recovered by the fishermen as a consequence of its exposure to sunlight, salt and water. Investment in R&D is crucial to the attainment of quality in line with Ecoalf’s standards.
More than 330 ton
of marine waste recovered since 2015
Ecoalf Foundation has established key arrangements with the main fishermen’s associations of Spain and Thailand.
When on land, these residues will be classified and stored depending on its nature until reaching the minimum quantity required to convert them into flakes and pellets through sophisticated innovative processes, obtaining 100% recycled filaments of high technical quality without using more of the planet’s natural resources.
