We use a real-time validation system, developed by VeChain. DNV governs the blockchain and use it for conducting assurance.
Every time we perform a step in our cleanup process, we register it in the app. Each step is a ´block´ and by the end of a cleanup process we will have a chain of blocks registered, and together this is called a blockchain. Once a block is registered in the system it cannot be changed – this makes blockchain technology one of the most secure and advanced systems to prove and document our cleanup process.
The collectors have access to the system via a mobile app that makes it easy for them to track the plastic waste. The data is registered already when the plastic waste is located in the water and until it is delivered and weighed at our sorting station.
Our blockchain includes coordinates and picture of plastic once located in the water, date and name of collector, weight, plastic types and batch number.
