To change the way we all do things...
Here's our way...


We Solve Problems

With Plastic

Plastics Pirate is conducting a Pilot in Far North Queensland in 2022 with communities, industries and key stakeholders to prove the value of plastic with our world-first mobile pyrolysis plants able to convert most types of plastic into usable fuels onsite.

Plastics Pirate Not-For-Profit

empowering communities with plastic treasure

Honesty, Integrity, Accountability and Fun steer our Plastics Pirate ship.

With our Not-For-Profit organisation, Plastics Pirate has developed a means to achieve our ultimate goal of providing life-saving safe water access and holistic health care in remote coastal communities across Australia, Melanesia and the South Pacific.

Using the power of pyrolysis to turn plastic into treasure, we can empower these remote coastal communities to help build a more efficient and sustainable future.

Our purpose-built, self-sufficient 24-metre landing barge The Processor I is designed to house our ScarabTech pyrolysis plant as well as plastic repurposing equipment, desalination plants and a medical clinic.

With your help, we can give the communities most impacted a reason to collect the ocean plastic dumped on their homelands in exchange for products and services they actually need.

Plastics Pirate is developing and connecting partnerships to achieve every one of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Not-for-Profit organisation is funded with a 5 per cent contribution of all fuel generated by Plastics Pirate pyrolysis plants.

We also welcome tax-deductible donations and sponsorship to ensure we can sustainably deliver on our goals to provide holistic health services and clean water to remote island communities.

Become part of our support crew and help us to make the world a better place!! 

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

We are aiming to meet all 17 objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals with our not-for-profit Plastics Pirate barge
We can eliminate poverty by empowering remote communities through their collection of plastic waste which we trade with them for safe water access solutions.
We aim to eliminate hunger by providing remote communities with practical skills and safe water access resources to grow and irrigate their crops.
Our holistic health clinics can enhance the health and well-being of our targeted remote coastal communities and provide lasting health measures and  the necessary skills to continue our work.
Educational programs can be incorporated into the delivery of essential services to remote communities and safe water access solutions will allow young girls to attend schools.
With the provision of safe water access solutions and specific educational programs, young girls can attend schools and women will have more time with the simplified collection of water.
The implementation of safe water access solutions and the removal of plastic from waterways of remote coastal communities can vastly improve sanitation.
The power sources and emission-free fuel produced by our on-board pyrolysis plant, paid for with plastic collection, can provide  communities with lighting and refrigeration.
Safe water access, improved health and up-skilling of communities can empower them with skills and equipment to drive economic growth.
We can provide the tools for communities to build plastic repurposing equipment to help establish industries and infrastructure.
Plastic waste collection can be carried out by people of all ages and genders and provide working options for people with disabilities.
Plastics Pirate can provide cities and communities reliable safe water access and other equipment to ensure sustainable growth.
By establishing a value for plastics, remote coastal communities are enabled to practice responsible consumption and production.
Plastics Pirate aims to lead the challenge remote communities face on climate action by establishing a value for ocean plastic where it impacts the most.
All underwater ecosystems can benefit from the Plastics Pirate approach to giving plastic a value which will aid in eliminating plastic from our oceans.
Access to a regular supply of reliable fresh water can transform remote coastal communities with the plentiful crops they can grow.
Remote coastal communities empowered with the health and economic benefits of reliable safe water access can uphold traditional justice practices better.
Plastics Pirate can empower remote coastal communities to help themselves with strong international partnerships and collaboration.
