Ocean Cleanup is set to bring a new prototype device into production and finally make a significant step towards plastic removal.
The trial run took place in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch off the coast of California, and even Boyan Slat, the founder of Ocean Cleanup, was amazed by the results.
Business Insider had a recent report that highlighted some of the technical details.
The great thing about this new device is that it might only take ten of these to clean up the area of the Pacific by 2040. With the right level of further funding, this could become an essential part of transforming the Oceans.
And all the plastic is currently being recycled into frames for glasses, so it’s not even filling up landfills.
