The best solution to save our sea.
SEALIGHT offers an affordable integrated approach, which combines cutting-edge technologies for marine litter collection / sorting / recycling, hydrogen harvesting from residues and capillary prevention actions to stop producing marine litter for ever.
The SeaLight Project
An advanced technologies to collect
and convert marine litter into recyclable materials.
SEALIGHT means INNOVATION
SEALIGHT is based on an integrated approach.
Sealight implements a credit system that certifies quantities
and data related to collection of marine plastic waste.
Thanks to a new plastic credit scheme to actively engage responsible actors (companies, citizens) upstream of the marine litter problem, committing them to a rapid transition. The principle is to involve plastic producers and users in an effective compensation for their indirect responsibility in originating the problem. Prevention projects will engage citizens to a virtuous behavioral change.
Data & transactions certification
Based on blockchain technology
0.5 kg recovered marine litter +
0.5 € in “Open innovation” funding.
Credits to be sold to any entity willing to fund both mitigation and prevention (plastic industry, packaging industry, etc.)
In situ prevention projects
Replacing plastic bottles with glass.
In situ electricity exploitation
We create a product that can be sold as a service.
Sealight Product as a Service will be validated in 3 different operational environments: harbour area (Ancona) , touristic area (Dubrovnik), protected marine area (Eolie).
covered by 4 IRIS patents
This system, conceived, designed and patented by IRIS, is based on the thermal plasma technology. It allows the treatment on a small-scale of non-recoverable and special waste. Thanks to the high temperatures reached (up to 5000 ° C) and the absence of oxygen, the organic waste fraction turns into gas which, after being filtered and purified from any harmful molecules, can be converted into heat and electricity.
A cleaner sea
1000 service contracts worldwide contracts in 5 years with a potential of 100 m€ turnover, 100% of mitigation actions covered by plastic credits with additional 100 m€ (cost of prevention projects included).
reduction of public health issues, better quality of life, new qualified jobs related to service operation and to plastic credits management.
Sealight market target
(EU hosts about 10,000 marinas).
We are a multidisciplinary team with all the required skills technical, economic and legal. We have already carried out scale-ups. We improved our business vision thanks to coaching services offered by the European Commission We are aware of the level of ambition of the project and risks.
Stay up to date
Durante il più importante appuntamento europeo per chi si occupa di tecnologia green, IRIS presenterà in collaborazione con Marevivo, associazione ambientalista focalizzata sulla protezione e la tutela del mare, i risultati dell’importante progetto per Tezenis “Insieme per il Mar Mediterraneo”.
