Aboard the Interceptor: the World’s most innovative solution to tackling River plastics. Invented by Boyan Slat, this machine collects roughly 18,000 pounds of trash every 3 days.
The Interceptor is The Ocean Cleanup’s answer for river plastic waste. It is the first scalable solution to prevent plastic from entering the world’s oceans from rivers.
It is 100% solar-powered, extracts plastic autonomously, and is capable of operating in the majority of the world’s most polluting rivers.
