Ocean Cleanup launched world’s first Cleanup System

The Ocean Cleanup just launched the world’s first ocean cleanup system through the San Francisco Bay, toward the infamous Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. The world’s first operational ocean cleanup system is set to be deployed this summer in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Short before the launch, Founder and CEO Boyan Slat explains how we got there and the challenges lying ahead of System 001.
