The organization responsible for developing a partnership and alliance with Sustainable Energy Corp. who's TCOM technology converts oceanic plastic and debris to usable fuel has announced an official partnership with the founder of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, Captain Charles Moore and his foundation, Algalita Marine Research Institute. The meeting between Tom Hirshberg, founder of COORC and Captain Charles Moore, founder of Algalita Marine Research Institute, marked a productive and progressive step forward in the formation of the COORC strategy to clean up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a massive collection of plastic debris floating within the Pacific Ocean. Estimates of the size of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch range from 270,000 square miles to more than 5,800,000 square miles.

The first campaign COORC is focused on is bringing the awareness to the world. In doing so we will be joining Captain Moore on his July 2014 research voyage to the GPGP. We will film a documentary cultivating Captain Moore's 15 years of research into one report. We are very excited to be able to invite Classrooms from around the world to log in and interact "LIVE" via streaming video. A ship to shore date will be set for classrooms to organize and for students to ask the onboard scientists and marine biologists questions. This voyage will consist of 6 weeks aboard Captain Moore's Research vessel. For more info on this climatic voyage see www.algalita.org

COORC’s new relationship with the Algalita Marine Research Institute will bring legitimacy to the efforts of its team and further inspire the developments of COORC and theTCOM technology Sustainable Energy Corp. has demonstrated. Founder of the Algalita Marine Research Institute, Captain Charles Moore, was the first to bring attention to the immensity of garbage debris floating throughout the Pacific. Captain Moore’s 1999 research showed that there were six times more plastic in this part of the ocean than there were zooplankton that feeds ocean life. These numbers were significantly higher than expected and shocked many marine scientists and oceanographers.

The mutual partnership between Algalita and COORC will bring about more awareness to the dire situation of that which is "The Great Pacific Garbage Patch" and its negative effects on the ocean currents, aquatic marine life as well as human life. This partnership will galvanize community support and further produce additional interest from volunteers, technology experts and research scientists alike.

With the support of the global community and the money raised we will educate the world and irradiate the plastic epidemic posing the the worlds oceans. 

Thank you for your support.
