Teen entrepreneur Boyan Slat is trying to raise 2 million US dollars in 100 days to fund The Ocean Cleanup. Fed up with finding more plastic than fish in the Ocean Boyan Slat wants to do something amazing.
The idea is to use the ocean currents to catch the plastic in floating barriers creating a passive collection that can later be extracted from the ocean. The technology will only capture plastics not sea life as plastic will remain in front of the floating barrier and everything else will flow underneath the barriers.
