VeChain Foundation Reacts
In order to make the announcement reach the community members far and wide, VeChain Foundation retweeted the report.
VeChain Foundation tweeted, “92,162kg of plastic waste recovered from oceans in May 2021 by ReSea using our blockchain and DNV Assurance!”
It can be recalled that VeChain, in collaboration with DNVGL, started powering ReSea in late February 2021, to trace its ocean cleanup solution.
According to the report, the involvement of DNVGL in the project is to introduce transparency, an aspect where VeChain’s solution has been fully functional.
Back then, DNVGL tweeted as follows, “Another win for oceans & rivers as Resea Project becomes the 2nd organisation certified to our Chain of Custody Standard for plastic recovered from the hydrosphere. Bringing transparency to the hard work of these initiatives is key to success.”
VeChain Foundation also wrote, “We are proud to power DNVGL’s client, the sustainable pioneer Resea Project to trace its ocean cleanup solution. By using blockchain, all sustainability efforts can be immutably stored and made visible. VeChain will play an important role in stopping plastic pollution.”
