Who Are They?
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit environmental engineering organization based in the Netherlands that develops technology to extract plastic pollution from the oceans. The organization was founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, a Dutch-born inventor-entrepreneur of Croatian origin who serves as its CEO.
The approach involves placing cleanup systems in ocean gyres to scoop up marine debris (the system is pushed by wind and current) in order to be able to clean up 50 percent of the debris in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in five years.

What Did We Do ?
To solve the problem, you need to understand it. The organization therefore also conducts scientific research into oceanic plastic pollution including two expeditions to the North Pacific Gyre, collecting huge amounts of data, and publicizing multiple scientific papers.
As part of our partnership, help The Ocean Cleanup make the best use of their data, including subjects like:
- Image detection (plastic in drone images)
- Identifying the barrier (on radar images)
- Supporting and training them on the daily use of Dataiku
