How to Source High Volumes of Ocean Plastic Materials
Scaling effectively is essential for the recycled ocean plastics industry to positively impact the planet and satisfy our mission to remove as much plastic as possible from oceans and the rest of the environment.
What separates Oceanworks from other industry players is our global supplier network. From our inception, we knew to satisfying current and future demands from the business community would require delivering millions of tons of capacity over time.
"Companies demanding scale and capacity in their material supply chains trust Oceanworks to efficiently source ocean plastics at high capacities."
-Rob Ianelli, Founder, Oceanworks
The sheer amount of available raw material is staggering. The challenge lies in getting high quality raw materials processed and available to our marketplace customers. This has traditionally been an archaic system, but our marketplace and long-term strategy have streamlined the supply chain, securing the highest quality recycled resins at equally impressive amounts for our partners.
When vetting suppliers for our network, it is imperative to understand their daily, weekly, and monthly output capacity so our supply chain team can fully qualify them. The growing enthusiasm for ocean plastics requires us to properly forecast demand, maintaining a delicate balance of supply and demand.
Collectively, the Oceanworks Marketplace supplier network anticipates delivering more than one million metric tons of material in 2020. This will grow as the demand side of the market increases procuring materials through our marketplace while consumer demand and expectation for sustainably-sourced goods grows.
When your company begins its journey of evaluating and incorporating ocean plastics into its manufacturing process, you will be hard-pressed finding another end-to-end solution delivering the same value Oceanworks provides. Our dedicated sales and partnership team is standing by to help your business Sea Plastic Differently.
