The Ocean Cleanup have created an impressive piece of technology, which will be used to help reduce waste in our oceans by up to 50%! It is known as System 001 and after carrying out a series of tests throughout the years, it had it's first trial on the 8th September 2018.
System 001 is now currently in port having repairs and maintenance being done after areas were identified that needed improving, such as stress concentration.
Once the Ocean Cleanup team are confident with the changes to the system design, they will aim to have 001 back in action in the upcoming months.
