The Environmental Organization OEOO was founded in 2011 by Günther Bonin in Munich. According to OEOO research, plastic waste was only explored on a selective basis, and there were no technologies to recover plastic waste from the sea. iXent helped with its expertise to create a concept of “marine litter cleanup” for the cleaning of world-wide water bodies from the plastic waste. Meanwhile, the focus has expanded and OEOO is also working on bringing oil and chemicals out of the water.
