Story

The Ocean Cleanup, the idea of a young Dutchman

What is your invention? It is a kind of artificial coast: a passive barrier where plastic accumulates dragged by currents. Instead of networks, use solid screens and thanks to the orientation of these, which are tied to the seabed, the plastics are dragged to end up concentrating in the center of the matrix. A central point collects and classifies them before sending them to land, to sell them and thus offset costs.

The Ocean Cleanup aims to eradicate half of the plastics of the great garbage island of the Pacific in 10 years.

It is estimated that the plastic oceanic waste already exceeds 5 billion pieces of plastic, whose weight will be around more than 150 million tons, according to figures from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the Five Gyres Institute in Los Angeles.

If we do nothing to remove this garbage and slow down our rate of spills, the situation could be irreversible. If this continues, in 2050 we will double the figure and by then the oceans could have more plastics than fish and approximately 99 percent of seabirds would have ingested plastic, according to some estimates.

For this we need your help to make this project a reality.
