Boyan Slat’s Ocean Cleanup

By: Greg Gallant-Kourany

Boyan slat made a boat to clean up pollution in rivers and oceans. They said it picks up 120,000 lbs of trash everyday. 1 of 4 machines that exist in the world. Two of them are already deployed and actively cleaning. The first time it came out it broke down in the middle of the ocean. They made a few adjustments to the system and launched it back in June. It was starting to catch plastic. The goal is to have fleets of them in all 5 oceans and interception devices.
