What started as an idea to include ocean plastics in the packaging of maritime components now lives on as a start-up company.
PJ Diesel Engineering have partnered up with KEA - Copenhagen School of Design and Technology with a vision to include "ocean plastics" for packaging of maritime components. The vision quickly evolved into a project with over 20 production technology students all with one goal - use ocean plastics as an ingredient in designing the maritime transport box of the future.
" Our company was founded 40 years ago with a mission to minimize waste by re-use and reconditioning of maritime components - so removing plastic waste from oceans and use it for our transport boxes is true to our core" says Anne-Mette Elsborg (CEO and founder)
The project since evolved as a group of students later ended up with founding their own start-up with the focus of removing plastic waste from the oceans. Read more about the company here
The project also made unglobalcompact.org as part of a report made by Copenhagen School of Design and Technology. The report can be viewed here - the project is described on page 34.
