Upcycle the Gyres Society

Upcycle the Gyres Society’s purpose is to inspire, promote, and facilitate making the necessary investment in technology and operations, to cleanup marine plastic garbage at high seas through the construction and operation of the worlds’ first High Seas / year-round Floating Eco-Research Upcycling Facility.

Regulation, taxation, and banning of specific plastic products are not enough to dilute the fact that marine plastic pollution will remain in our oceans from hundreds, to one thousand years; marine cleanup efforts need to start with stopping the plastics from going into the ocean in the first place.

The definition of the word Upcycle is to, reuse (discarded objects or materials) in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original, such as: the opportunity to upcycle trash, or turn it into more valuable products, is enormous.

Upcycle the Gyres Society proposes that it is possible and necessary to clean up marine plastic garbage and convert it into valuable products such as light crude oil, methanol, their derivatives and intermediates.
