Ocean Garbage Gobbler Project - OGG
OGG is here to clean up our planet's oceans!
Solid funding by Government, Corporate and Private Sponsors will hasten its progess.

Dual Mode OGG Pods
Ocean garbage not only floats on the surface. Garbage has been found at all levels. DUAL MODE Ogg Pods recover deeply submerged garbage that cannot usually be recovered by surface vessels using floating nets.
Surface Mode / Beach Mode
OGG Pods in SURFACE MODE collect and crush surface ocean garbage. Robotic Arms drag in larger garbage pieces and cut discarded fishing nets into much shorter, more manageable lengths for disposal.
OGG Pods in BEACH MODE simply add tracks to enable the SURFACE MODE Pods to land on beaches and river banks to efficiently collect unwanted marine garbage.
OGG Pods in DEEP MODE collect ocean garbage at deeper levels with a submersible lower stage. Garbage is collected as the pod drifts with the surface current, as well as while the submerged stage is raised from deep water. OGG Pods in DEEP MODE collect some micro-plastics by using suitable filters in their fishing nets.
Spiralling and spinning of the separated submerged stage during DEEP MODE operations is controlled by auto-balancing vertical fins .
This issue cannot be left unanswered forever. Ocean Garbage Pollution has dire consequences!
Plastic polluters MUST become responsible and pay for collection of their garbage that reaches the ocean.
Pollution washed up on otherwise pristine beaches is only a tiny part of the pollution problem of the oceans.
The OGG Project was created to address the Marine Garbage problem globally by designing and developing semi-autonomous pods that can collect, compact and identify** all types of marine pollution and prepare it for retrieval and recycling or disposal. Currently, there is approximately 300,000 tons of floating ocean debris, with an estimated 90% of it being plastic.
**Plastic Source Country of Origin can now be detected and proven. Appropriate damages may be awarded.
These DUAL MODE OGG pods will use vortex-producing impellers that will draw all types of marine debris and pollution into a holding "pod" that will enable efficient retrieval. The pods will be powered by long-lasting Aluminum / Graphite salt water batteries, as well as Hydrogen Fuel Cells, which will enable the pods to operate semi-autonomously for extended periods of time. The pods will transmit a "full" signal that will initiate collection by collector ships.
The proposed OGG pods are quite large... about 10-20 metres in diameter. A large fleet of 100 [or more] OGG Pods working day and night, 24/7 is needed to clean up ALL the ocean garbage faster than it is being deposited.
Each OGG pod contains one large central nylon net of 200 cubic metres (8m diameter x 8m deep), PLUS an additional 10 smaller sectional nylon nets of 20 cubic metres each, making a total of 400 cubic metres of garbage collection capacity for each pod.
Once the pods are located in the Pacific Ocean, within the Western Garbage Patch OR the Eastern Garbage Patch, we estimate that a fleet of 100 OGG Pods will remove more than 14 million cubic metres of ocean garbage per year.
Each OGG pod is built using a very strong and durable MODULAR construction.
Modules ensure efficient simplified construction which reduces costs and speeds up production time.
