After a 6-week testing campaign, our main technical challenge is solved by modifying the system to move at a consistent speed through the plastic. The slow-down configuration was most effective in the trials. We now address our next challenge... Read more:

You're not seeing double. The Launcher and Transporter are both in the middle of the patch for crew shift 1 and shift 2 handover. With that complete, the 1st crew is heading home on the Launcher, while the 2nd will continue the trials with System 001/B. Great work, team.

We first need to complete the System 001/B testing program before making any conclusions. Stay tuned for an update in the next few weeks!

Meet EVE, our - the autonomous research vessel that joins every offshore crew and helps monitor marine life around the cleanup systems. EVE also collects wave and current data and other atmospheric and water parameters.

Over the last week, the offshore crew has changed the configuration of the system to begin trialing speeding up the system. Using these large lifting bags, we will conduct multiple tests to learn more about this potential modification to the design.

The parachute sea anchor is the last test in our series of decelerating the system. Sea conditions were rough yesterday, and, yet, no complications have been observed. Results are underway, but the crew will move to the configurations to accelerate the system in the coming days.

The crew has conducted the first two tow tests and they are now testing the parachute sea anchor, all aimed at slowing down the system. Data is being processed by HQ, but the tests are running smoothly and the weather has been favorable. We'll update after the campaign concludes.

Welcome to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. It looks like we are in the right spot to test our system.

Over the coming weeks, we will perform various tests to slow down or speed up the system. Today the team will start the first test to attempt slowing down the system.

Speed is key for The Ocean Cleanup to return to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This system was built in four months and we are now ready to begin testing our modifications.

The collected plastic will be brought back to shore and recycled into durable products to help further fund our scale up. Stay tuned!

Some of our team members received training from NOAA to rescue, retrieve, and, if applicable, determine cause of death of marine animals. This turtle had only lived in the wild for one year and is now an important reminder of why cleanup is necessary.
