Plastic upcycling company collects marine debris in pilot project to establish new recycling center


SeaSweepers LLC., a Miami-based marine plastics upcycling company, has completed its initial research tours as the first step in a pilot project to establish an efficient marine plastic recycling supply chain for North and Central America. The pilot project involves sourcing and processing over 1 ton of ocean plastics, laying the groundwork for the establishment of the first US-based marine plastics recycling center. During the tours in the Florida Keys and Key Biscayne, lobster traps, nets, ropes, and other debris were collected to be used to determine the appropriate equipment and processes needed for effective marine plastics recycling.
