MISSION: Ensure the survival of the marine ecosystem and the health of the maritime economy by removing macro and microplastic debris from our oceans and returning the marine environment back to clear blue seas.

START UP STRATEGY: Secure crowdfunding for the initial design of our Floating Robot for Eliminating Debris (FRED), educational outreach, and technology roadmap. We also will apply for federal, NGO, and philanthropic grants for FRED prototype development. We will optimize our design and develop a small fleet of FREDs for a pilot project in the Pacific Gyre. Based on pilot findings, Clear Blue Sea will commercialize FRED fleets for deployment around the world.

  • Leverage existing best practices and best technology on the market
  • Provide a collaborative workplace
  • Create a network of scientific and business advisors

Design Prototype

Optimize FRED Design
  • FRED is our Floating Robot for Eliminating Debris – the largest marine robot ever designed
  • Engineer the mission control system for operating FREDs
  • Engineer the sustainable processing of harvested ocean plastics
  • Prepare Development Plan for FRED Prototype

Build Prototype

Secure Funding For Full Scale Fred
  • Prototype FRED to have full functionality and performance based on engineering trade studies
  • Integrate highly reliable, commercially-available subsystems and componentry
  • Extensively test operational performance against target metrics

Community Outreach

Educate Community
  • Develop educational materials for our website, marine-related conferences, and local schools
  • Prepare White Papers and news articles for publication across stakeholder communities
  • Collaborate with university engineering departments and labs
