A database with an overview of startups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) who are working on marine plastic management can be found here. The list includes companies that have, as their main product or service offering, the reduction of the impact of plastic pollution on the marine environment. Companies are included in the database if they are 1) founded after 2000 and 2) have fewer than 200 employees, thereby excluding large multi-national companies and corporates. The database is comprised of 105 startups and SMEs working on marine plastic. 

The database was built as part of the Horizon 2020 CLAIM Project (Cleaning Litter By Developing & Applying Innovative Methods in European Seas) and an analysis of the companies in the sample can be found in an academic article published in the Marine Pollution Bulletin. 

More information on CLAIM can be found on the website: https://www.claim-h2020project.eu/
