The RACE FOR WATER Foundation is a charity dedicated to the preservation of water. Today, this vital resource is under massive threat from plastic pollution and must be protected. Our mission is to stop the exponential trend of wild plastic waste reaching waterways by developing new social and economic models that gives end-of-life plastics a value.

Transforming plastic Waste into Energy is a solution for plastic pollution of the oceans to stop the exponential trend of wild plastic waste reaching waterways by developing new social and economic models that give end-of-life plastics a value .In many cities around the world, collectors are paid to collect aluminium, glass, cardboard and even PET, so the infrastructure meets the cost of them (recycling, combustion, etc.). However, they do not pick up the plastics because they have no market value. Together with our industrial partner, ETIA, we have come up with a technology capable of transforming end-of-life plastics into energy, be it gas or electricity, and the sale of this energy will allow us to pay the street collectors, which will encourage them to pick up end-of-life plastics. The machine for converting plastic waste into an energy resource uses a unique and patented gasification process. The first machine will be implemented next year in collaboration with SUEZ to demonstrate its energy yield and its environmental performances. At the same time, various projects are being studied across several islands and coastal towns to illustrate the environmental, economic and social benefits of the value chain that the Race for Water Fondation wishes to create for end-of-life plastics. This innovative technological approach also demonstrates that end-of-life plastic waste can be an additional resource in the energy transition.
