Interceptor™ - A scalable solution to intercept river plastic pollution.

The Interceptor™ stops new plastic from entering the ocean and can be deployed all around the world.

Knowing that rivers are the main source of ocean plastic pollution (1000 rivers are responsible for roughly 80% of the pollution), the Interceptor™ is the scalable solution to prevent debris from entering the world's oceans from rivers. It is 100% solar-powered, extracts debris autonomously, and can be placed in the majority of the world's most polluting rivers.
