During his diving holliday in Greece, he found more plastic bags than fish. Now he is 21 and CEO of a high-profile company whose mission is to clean up the incredible amount of plastic floating around in the oceans.

This Prototype developed to CleanUp the Oceans, can be a real game changer.

Since today, the first prototype of the ocean cleanup installation is ready to test.

It’s an invention of Boyan Slat, with which he wants to clean up the plastic debris in the oceans.

Instead of an installation of one hundred kilometers in length, this scale model is a one hundred meters long prototype which is posted for the Dutch coast in the North Sea. Read More
