this is the second time Boyan appears in Joe’s podcast, but this time he comes back with even better news.
After 6 years of many failings and adjustments, Boyan has recently found noticeable success after going back to the drawing board to try different things.
What if if actually turn the problem into the solution?
In October the company announced they were actually catching plastic.
Just a couple of weeks ago, the first two shipping containers full of plastic were landed in port.
The ocean does not get cleaned by itself
Since 2015, Boyan and his team have been working on a secret side project called The Interceptor, which just launched.
The Interceptor is solar-powered and fully autonomous. It pulls out enormous amounts of plastic out of the rivers without affecting the wildlife.
There are two Interceptors operating at the moment, and four built.
