In 2010, the Swiss entrepreneur Marco Simeoni created the Race for Water Foundation to fight against plastic pollution in the oceans. Committed to a five year Odyssey (2017-2021), the ambassador vessel of the Foundation is going around the world to raise awareness about the impact of plastic waste on the marine environment and propose local solutions to this global problem, thanks to a machine which transforms plastic waste into electric energy: the BIOGREEN.  A unique ambassador for energy transition, the Race for Water vessel is propelled solely by renewable energies thanks to its solar panels, its traction kite and its chain of hydrogen production and storage.
