Ichthion Limited is an award-winning developer of disruptive technologies
to extract plastics and synthetic waste from rivers and oceans.
We also develop effective strategies to increase circularity in cities based on data
Humans have produced approximately 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic to date, though only 9% of this has been recycled. Through this voracious appetite for plastic and the resulting uncontrolled waste stream, an estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic has contaminated ocean ecosystems, with a further 12 million tonnes entering the marine environment per year.
In a nutshel, plastic pollution is the result of a global production model designed to produce, consume and dispose (linear economy)
Ichthion, a multi-award winning company born out of the laboratories of Imperial College London, seeks to overcome the limitations of existing technologies by delivering the first truly scalable solutions to reduce the flow of plastics into the world’s oceans, proposing energy-generative systems that uniquely can installed in rivers, coastal areas and the oceans to remove plastic waste and generate data.
Over the last two years, Ichthion has filed a number of international PCT applications related to the Azure, Cobalt and Ultramarine technology
propositions (more details in the technology page).
