Who we are
Ocean Plastic Forum is an association comprising around 60 members, including interest groups, NGOs, universities, and diverse companies. Our goal is to clean up the oceans by means of business models that remove ocean plastic and transform it into new products through upcycling.
The ocean plastic problem
Ocean plastic is a complex and wicked problem – and so is fixing it. At Ocean Plastic Forum, we see ocean plastic as a valuable resource that can be used in the circular economy.
Together with our members, we develop more sustainable value chains that collect and recycle ocean plastic, in Denmark and abroad.
Our members have expertise in designing, supplying, and operating the necessary equipment for ocean plastic waste recovery.
