GAFÉIAS OCEANS 2015
develops technical & economic business solutions
clearing the Oceans from plastic waste till 2050.
Based on the findings of the projects
[2014-01-01 – 2014-12-31, independent from GAFÉIAS as of 2015-01-01]
GAFÉIAS OCEANS 2050 concentrates on technology and business development exploiting plastic from land and sea. GAFÉIAS Oceans 2050 initiates plastic waste upgrading industries on land and sea linked to integrated & sustainable ocean plastic waste exploitation & processing technologies.
GAFÉIAS OCEANS 2050 is enthusiastically committed to develop feasible strategies cleaning land and sea environment from plastic waste.
GAFÉIAS OCEANS 2050 strongly intends to link with United Nations Industrial Development Organization, in order to develop related plastic waste upgrading industries on a global scale.
Planet Earth was once regarded as “infinite” or “unlimited” for humankind, not only because of the resources available but also due to the ability of the Earth to digest all the waste that humankind produced. However, from the point of view of the damage done to the ecosystem or the living environment, the Earth as a whole should be considered “limited” and “overdeveloped” at present. Yuan-Tseh Lee, 2009

Movies / Documentaries:
→ PLASTIC PLANET, Werner Boote
→ PLASTIC SHORES, by Edward Scott-Clarke, 60 min, 2012, English
The documentary deals with the pollution of oceans and coastlines through plastic waste and highlights the dangers of the presence of plastic in the human and animal food chain. Following the chain of plastics within our oceans around the world, the film aims to make people think about our use of disposable plastics and what happens to them after they have been thrown away.
