Ocean Purpose Project

Ocean Purpose Project

Technology Area(s) : CleanTech

Ocean Purpose Project is a proudly Pasir Ris-based social enterprise driving ocean conservation and plastic pollution prevention via disruptive and creative projects with mass-scale impact. Through our 3 key pillars:

  • Plastic to Fuel – transforming ocean waste into low-sulphur fuel, carbon black and carbon nanotubes through our nimble, deployable pyrolysis machines
  • Bioplastics – creating a single-use plastic alternative from seaweed and mussels
  • Behaviour Change – mobilising corporates and communities through offline projects, like beach clean-ups and Blue Carbon projects based in Singapore and Bali, and online programmes like our OPPortunity Webinar and social media campaigns. Despite 2020’s tsunami of challenges, Ocean Purpose Project represented Singapore as the global finalist of the Climate Launchpad organised by the European Union and is the first social enterprise accepted into the Shell Start-Up Engine. We won Most Sustainable Marine Conservation Solutions 2020 by Global Brands Magazine and were finalists for two Marketing Excellence Awards 2020 – clinching silver in Corporate Social Responsibility.
