Fighting plastic pollution

EFINOR SEA CLEANER and The Sea Cleaners have joined forces to develop new solutions against plastic pollution.

The two entities are launching a programme to co-develop collection solutions at sea for floating macro and micro waste.

The similarity of names predisposed the company EFINOR SEA CLEANER and The SeaCleaners, the association for the protection of the oceans founded by the navigator Yvan Bourgnon, to get together to imagine innovative solutions for marine decontamination.

Beyond the homonymity, it is the desire to share their respective expertise that inspired the partnership between the two entities.

The versatility of EFINOR SEA CLEANER boats

The company EFINOR SEA CLEANER based in Paimpol (Côtes d'Armor) is specialised in the design, manufacture and marketing of multi-service pollution control vessels equipped with patented technology.

This unique and innovative recovery system is integrated into clean-up vessels and allows the collection of all types of floating waste, whether solid or liquid, including hydrocarbons.

The SeaCleaners' work

For its part, The SeaCleaners, an association under the French law of 1901 recognised as being in the public interest, was created in 2016 to fight against plastic pollution. Through its MANTA INNOVATION (SAS) division, it develops innovative technological solutions for the collection and recovery of floating plastic macro-waste.

Its flagship project, the Manta, is an innovative vessel equipped with an onboard plant, which will be launched in 2024. This giant of the seas will be the first ocean-going vessel capable of collecting and treating floating ocean waste en masse in high-density areas (estuaries and mouths of large rivers, along the coast) before it breaks up and penetrates the marine ecosystem in the long term.

A real technological challenge, the Manta will be powered by a combination of several renewable energy production technologies to minimise its carbon footprint.

Working together to collect waste of all sizes everywhere

A travers leur partenariat, EFINOR SEA CLEANER et The SeaCleaners souhaitent développer des solutions de collecte complémentaires au Manta, permettant d’intervenir dans les zones étroites, peu profondes, où la manœuvrabilité est limitée, et qui permettront de collecter les macro et les micro-déchets flottants (<25mm).

The jointly developed solutions will also be offered for sale by EFINOR SEA CLEANER and MANTA INNOVATION to public and private players wishing to engage in marine pollution control campaigns.
