U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is launching a new program called “the Plastics Innovation Challenge”, in order to enhance innovation in the energy-efficient plastics recycling technology. The use of plastics may plays an major role in modern life, but its results of plastic waste are rapidly increasing, harming rivers, oceans, and landfills.
The Ocean Cleanup, which goals to clean 90% of the ocean plastic pollution, developed a new technology system and launched an innovative automated device called “The Interceptor”. This device will catch the plastic before it flows deep into the ocean and stop the new plastic that enter from the rivers.
The Ocean Cleanup announced that System 001/B is successfully capturing and collecting plastic debris. The system operating in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch captures and concentrates all plastic.
