‘Interceptor’ aims to capture plastics before they hit oceans
The Rotterdam, Netherlands-based group unveiled its invention called Interceptor during an Oct. 26 livestream event.
The technology uses a floating barrier to guide river litter to the mouth of the Interceptor, where a conveyor belt sends it to one of six dumpsters on a separate barge. When the dumpsters are filled with plastic, the barge takes the haul to shore for recycling.
