Floating platform to clean the plastic soup in the oceans

Plastic that you use for minutes, maybe even seconds will stay in the environment for hundreds of years. That’s why there are gigantic spots of “plastic soup” floating in the oceans. Cristian Ehrmantraut designed a platform that acts like a giant dialysis machine for the world’s oceans. The platform would be placed in one of the ocean’s 6 vortexes—areas where mass amounts of oceanic water pass through, bringing waves of plastic garbage. The platform then filters out ocean water from the plastic waste, then compress plastic waste into blocks for post–consumer use.
