Sydney, November 21, 2022: The global leader and manufacturer of ceramic coatings – Kovalent Coatings are pleased to support the initiative of The Ocean Cleanup for cleaner waterways. This is an initiative to expedite their aim of developing and scaling technologies to get rid of plastic waste in the ocean. To an extent, ceramic coatings facilitate limiting the amount of chemical/water used for cleaning vessels/vehicles by eradicating the regular use of wax or aggressive detergents. However, there is still a long way to go. Kovalent Coatings’ marine grade ceramic coating Revive, is VOC-free that does no harm to marine organisms.
The Ocean Cleanup works towards reducing chemical emissions through plastics by closing the source of plastic pollution and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. Kovalent Coatings founder and CEO, Deepankar Goyal says, “One of our key missions is to reduce the chemical discharge in the waterways. The future of ceramic coatings lies in sustainable formulas and we are constantly striving to achieve it.”
About The Ocean Clean-Up:
The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organisation, is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Their aim is to put themselves out of business once the oceans are clean. The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. They aim to achieve this goal by taking a two-pronged approach: stemming the inflow via rivers and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. For the latter, The Ocean Cleanup is developing large-scale systems to efficiently concentrate the plastic for periodic removal. This plastic will then be used to create durable products and fund continued cleanup, making cleanup itself circular. In 2019, the organization launched the other half of its solution, the Interceptor™, to extract plastic in rivers before reaching the ocean. Founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, The Ocean Cleanup now employs approximately 95 engineers and researchers. The foundation is headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
