Plastic waste catcher completes test phase – sight

Of the nine missions, the organization collected nearly 29 tons of plastic waste at sea level, the organization announced Wednesday in Victoria, Canada. According to him, this successful test technology is proof that it works and that the seas can be cleaned of debris, said Boen Slot, a Dutchman who started and led the organization in the presence of newspaper representatives. “I think this is really a victory for humanity,” the 27-year-old said.

At the end of July, the revised system 002, nicknamed “Jenny”, was renamed the Great Pacific Garbage Project off the west coast of Canada. Scientists estimate that 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic will be collected in this cycle in the Pacific. The garbage collector from “The Ocean Cleanup” is an 800 meter long net construction that is slowly pulled through the water by two U-shaped towers. The plastic waste collected in it is loaded on ships and recycled on land.
