ACC supports the Rozalia Project’s mission is to find and remove marine debris (from the surface to the sea floor) through action, technology, outreach and research. America’s Plastics Makers are proud to provide support that helps make the Project possible. Using remotely operated vehicles equipped with sonar and a manipulator arm, Rozalia Project crew search the sea floor from aboard their 60′ sailing research vessel, American Promise, locating and removing marine debris of all sizes. They employ a variety of techniques to recover and recycle or properly dispose of the ocean trash. Rozalia Project also travels the country educating people of all ages about marine debris, and demonstrating much the technology they use conducting dockside, interactive presentations and shipboard programs for community, school and environmental groups.
