The project the Ocean Cleanup Project is committed in the near future to reduce the spot twice.
Massive device to clean up the ocean, developed by 24-year-old author, was launched on Saturday to clear the Great Garbage patch in the Pacific ocean.
For five years, the organization, The Ocean Cleanup, founded by 24-year-old Dutch innovator Bojan Slalom (Boyan Slat), trying to create a system that can clean the oceans from plastic. Today in the waters of the planet have accumulated a staggering amount of plastic, and it is growing every year reaches the sea at least 8 million tons of plastic.
Since this debris is broken into smaller pieces, much of it is ultimately transferred to one of the five massive ocean regions, which even got the title, the biggest of which is the Great Pacific Garbage patch.
The project the Ocean Cleanup Project is committed in the near future to reduce the spot twice. Of Slet has developed a special device with a network length of about 500 meters will collect plastic. A test run of the device held under the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco. The system will be able to collect up to 50 thousand tonnes of plastic a year.
