This is the 4Ocean Mobile Skimmer, a robust trash-collecting vessel that skims the waterways to gather and removes plastic and other debris. This super-effective skimmer measures slightly over 22 feet long and is built with huge retractable arms that give the vessel a wingspan of almost 13 feet.
Over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently litter the ocean and accumulate in five ocean garbage patches, including the largest one – the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This concentration is located between Hawaii and California and is reportedly polluted with 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic. While a massive undertaking, the Ocean Cleanup team has a plan.
