Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP) is a belief, a vision, and a dream. Born from a desire to make a difference for the sake of future generations. The idea behind OWP was born in 2019 after one of the founders, experienced the critical plastic waste problem in the ocean and rivers while traveling with his kids.
OWP is a circular packaging solution made and driven by Pack Tech A/S with a team of dedicated people who strive to make a positive change by reducing the amount of plastic waste in the ocean.
THE SUPPLY CHAIN
In 2020 we experienced serious challenges with the accuracy of our documentation of the OWP raw materials. We disappointed customers that believed in us, and we strongly considered giving up on the project we had started.
We didn’t give up. Instead, we spent two years getting back on track and isolated all activities behind the OWP raw materials in a new company called ReSea Project.
With the start of ReSea Project, we decided to take control of each step in the supply chain. When we established this new step, we became one of only two companies worldwide being certified in collecting plastic in the hydrosphere.
The first step was employing local collectors to do all the plastic collection in-house. We then opened a sorting station in Jakarta, employing over 20 people. This allowed the collected plastic to be sorted in more detail and with full control. Finally, we carefully set up selected partnerships with 2 plastic processors converting the sorted plastic into new granulate that is tested up against REACH, CalPro65, and Heavy Metal by Intertek.
In early 2023 we re-launched our OWP with a new logo representing the new OWP. The future.
