Delft student's Ocean Cleanup crowdfunding successful
The Ocean Cleanup, a concept launched by student Boyan Slat to tackle plastic pollution in the world's oceans, has reached its crowdfunding goal of two million dollars to scale-up the project. Boyan was first confronted with the problem of plastic pollution in the seas while diving in Greece, where he spotted more plastic bags than fish. The problem struck him so much that while still in high school he dedicated six months of research to understanding plastic pollution and the economic, logistical and technological challenges of cleaning it up.
