Solgaard Foundation x Ocean Plastic Filter
Yangtze River, China
Currently in conceptual phase, the Ocean Plastic Filter is a mass-scale waste removal infrastructure seeking to eliminate three billion pounds of river- generated ocean plastic annually, making it the world’s largest waste collection system under development to-date.
Proposed for initial implementation in the most polluting river in the world, the Yangtze River in China, The Ocean Plastic Filter has the potential to eliminate 20-40% of plastic waste from polluting our ocean.
