On 16 May 2018 LifeGate reported:
The Ocean Array Cleanup invented by Boyan Slat is headed towards the Great Pacific garbage patch where it will begin to gather tonnes of plastic waste accumulated by oceanic currents.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Boyan Slat's vision has become reality. Five years have passed since 19-year-old Slat left his aeronautical engineering degree to dedicate himself to his mission: cleaning up the ocean from plastic. The young prodigy from The Netherlands founded the NGO Ocean Cleanup and designed a machine to gather plastic waste from the ocean using currents. After a feasibility study and a successful fundraising campaign, the Ocean Array Cleanup system is ready to be tested on the field (in the sea).
. . . Slat's objective is to collect approximately 5,000 kilos of plastic over the course of the first month of operations and to dispose of half of the Great Pacific garbage patch in five years. The machine will have a minimal environmental impact since it uses currents and doesn't require energy to function.
