Boyan Slat, CEO and Founder of the Ocean Cleanup, details the design modifications for System 001/B. These upgrades entail two options to speed up the system or slow it down. Subscribe to our channel: https://bit.ly/371k8sN
Additionally, by taking a modular approach to the design, we can iterate at a much swifter speed and adjust the technology as we learn more. All with the aim of reaching proof of technology and commencing cleanup of The Great Pacific Garbage Patch as soon as possible.
Trash accumulates in five ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health, and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The ocean is big. Cleaning up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch using conventional methods – vessels and nets – would take thousands of years and tens of billions of dollars to complete. Our passive systems are estimated to remove 50% of the Great Pacific Garbage patch in just five years, and at a fraction of the cost.
