    Default Cleaning up Plastic Pollution

    Breakthrough !
    Boyan Slat unveils The Ocean Cleanup Interceptor

    Boyan Slat, a young Dutch entrepreneur and his group, The Ocean Cleanup, have invented an ingenious collection barge to clean plastic debris from our oceans

    During its test run, the collection barge collected macro and micro plastic debris in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch

    In October, The Ocean Cleanup unveiled a solar powered device called the Interceptor to remove plastic waste from rivers

    Of the world's 100,000 rivers, 1,000 are responsible for most plastic that reaches the oceans. Interceptors have already been deployed in Jakarta, Indonesia, and Klang, Malaysia

    The Interceptor may be the lowest cost way to remove plastic pollution and is especially cost effective in coastal countries where tourism and fisheries industries are prevalent
