OBP Credits are a type of plastic credits focused on removing from nature low value* Ocean Bound Plastic. Each OBP Credit is equivalent to 1Kg of low value OBP that has been removed from the environment and adequately treated by a certified organization.
OBP Credits are only issued by a certified project (to this standard: OBP-NEU-STD). Each credit corresponds to the effective removal and treatment of OBP by the project, and verified by the certification body. The OBP Certification Program does not allow forecasted or estimated plastic credits.
OBP Credit issuance and retirement are tracked in the public registry held by Zero Plastic Oceans.
* In the OBP certification program this plastic waste is named Non-Commercially Recyclable OBP, it means all plastic waste that cannot be sold for recycling profitably and therefore is never collected.
