  1. Plastic Aquatic Etienne Gernez Marin Forsøpling Konferanse 20140205 New Challenges for the Maritime Industry

  2. “We need to do something about it!” Henrik O. Madsen - DNV GL CEO Why does he care?

  3. Where to start? IDEAS PRODUCT Optimisation NEED Constellation Research Development • Need…a different approach than “engineering a solution” • Need…a solid rationale before going out chasing marine litter • Need…to fill in knowledge gaps Framework by Tom Chi

  4. A Platform to Join the “Plastic Conversation” • “Search and Rescue” • See over, on, over the surface, far away • Track fronts and debris • Sail fast and clean • 30 scientists + technology makers + journalists • Work in situ • www.dnv.com/plasticaquatic Private and confidential

  5. “Like CO2, plastic pollution is everyone´s problem” Who is “everyone” ? How to reach out ? Personal or Corporate engagement ? Private and confidential

  6. Erik Bjørntvedt – The ship owner perspective • Estimated 6 million tonne debris originating from ships / year (F. Galgani) • Estimated 10 000 TEU = 200 000 tonne cargo lost from ships / year (F. Galgani) • Compliant with regulation • No carrot nor stick • Struggling with other “higher priority” problems • No damage to ships • ?? Loopholes ?? • !! Reception facilities !!

  7. A broader view – “The Ocean Business Community” and the “Maritime Strategy Framework Directive” • Ships + Oil rigs = opportunity for a global ocean observation system • “Sealitter Cam” experiment • “Corporate Ocean Responsibility“ (Paul Holthus) • “Good ecological status” by 2020 • Ecosystem management approach • CO2 and Marine litter at the same level • Incentives and support to research

  8. Technology Outlook: Autonomous systems – Need for Qualification • Several small is more energy efficient than one big (Jim Bellingham – MBARI) • Using sun, wind, wave energy • Needs a very good brain (AI) • Data transmission cost • Follow the Guidelines!! • Qualification of New Technology • System Thinking (compatibility)

  9. A national action plan ! An international competition ! http://www.ouroceanschallenge.org/
