The Ocean Cleanup uses our LFB600

The Ocean Cleanup uses our Litter Fence Boom (LFB600) to guide floating debris into their new invention, an autonomous system for preventing the unrelenting flow of plastic pollution into the world’s oceans. We have been Project Partners, working with The Ocean Cleanup since 2016, and are very proud to be part of this project!

Boyan Slat has been leading The Ocean Cleanup team, who have come up with a way to prevent more plastic from reaching the oceans. An autonomous, environmentally friendly floating device that is designed to scoop floating plastic pollution out of rivers before it reaches the sea. It is 100% solar-powered, extracts plastic autonomously, and is capable of operating in the majority of the world’s most polluting rivers.

Bolina Booms is proud to be part of this project

Bolina has been working with The Ocean Cleanup for a number of years, and now Boyan’s team have developed a system to clear rivers of floating plastic at the source. Their autonomous system uses our Litter Fence Boom (LFB600), due to its robust construction and efficient flush-sided design, which deflects and guides debris into the collection system.
