Founded in 2015 by Australian surfers Pete Ceglinski and Andrew Turton, the Seabin Project has evolved from a simple ocean trash skimmer to a sophisticated, data-driven operation. Beyond cleaning harbors, marinas, and ports, Seabin now plays a vital role in global ocean health, partnering with major brands and government bodies, and has reached a $1 million milestone in annual recurring revenue from the sale of impact data.
Key Projects & Impact
Seabin V5 and V6 Deployments
The Seabin V5 and V6 models continue to be instrumental in removing marine debris, including microplastics and oils. Significant achievements include filtering over 14 billion liters of water in Sydney Harbour, capturing over 100 tons of marine litter. In Los Angeles, within a span of just a few months in 2022, Seabin filtered 1 billion liters of water and captured 2.1 tons of marine litter.
Data-Driven Environmental Impact
Seabin's transition to leveraging environmental data for revenue marks a significant pivot in their business model. Their upcoming financial data products, akin to carbon credits but focused on microplastics, will offer valuable insights into ocean pollution, aiding companies and government bodies in making informed decisions.
Global Expansion and Community Involvement
Seabin's global presence has expanded, with operations in 53 countries. The 'Smarter Cities - Cleaner Oceans' pilot in Sydney has set a precedent for full-service pollution control in urban waterways, with plans to scale this model worldwide.
