IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We are currently revising our website, at the moment you can still find our original idea here. Information about the updated concept will follow shortly, if you want to be informed about it, please subscribe to our newsletter.

THE VISION

The original PGS concept was the topic of my architecture master’s thesis. I was aware of the pollution in our oceans, but I did not yet fully understand the full extent and consequences of our actions.

While scuba diving on holiday on several occasions, I personally witnessed the sheer mass of pollution in our oceans. When I saw, with my own eyes, just how much plastic was floating in front of my goggles, I knew I had to do something!

In the months that followed, I took a close look at the problem. Where does the waste come from? What is it made of? How does it endanger marine flora and fauna?

I gradually came to the realisation that architecture alone cannot solve this problem. I began doing research in a wide range of fields, including fluid mechanics, plastics manufacturing, consumer behaviour, recycling processes, the marine food chain, anchoring of offshore drilling rigs, algae cultivation and many other areas.

As my awareness of the complexity of the problem grew, so too did my determination to develop an overall approach to helping preserve our oceans!

 

THE CURRENT SITUATION

PROBLEM

The oceans and seas are the basis of all life on earth, but humans are increasingly destroying it.

More than ten percent of plastic ends up in the oceans worldwide.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Behind this version is a sophisticated technology. Our research & development team is divided into two areas: The development of the platform and the recycling of the skimmed plastic waste.
