Plastic pollution in the world’s oceans is one of the biggest environmental problems today. Drifting plastic is concentrated into ocean garbage patches by the ocean currents, which grind the plastic into microscopic particles. These microplastics threaten not only the oceans’ ecosystems and sea life, but also the humans at the end of the food chain.
As the pioneer in the welding industry, we know that change requires work, courage and new perspectives. This year Kemppi will make a donation to The Ocean Cleanup to support the development of new technology to catch the plastic from our oceans. Each and every one of us is entitled to food and water without microplastics.
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization that develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. The Ocean Cleanup’s energy-neutral solutions take advantage of natural ocean currents and solar energy-powered electronics to catch and concentrate plastic.
