How to rid the oceans of plastic? Boyan Slat strives for the solution! He's the founder and CEO of "The Ocean Cleanup" – aiming to clean up 90% of ocean plastic pollution. Subscribe to my channel for my next video – with a VERY special person: https://www.youtube.com/user/nicorosb...
I am really impressed by Boyan's story leading a company with about 100 employees at the age of 25 and for tackling one of our major environmental issues, which many say is unsolvable. I'm looking forward to your comments!! By the way...Boyan is Dutch, so of course he's also a big Max Verstappen fan – check out his F1 analysis at the end of the Podcast.
We met in Davos at the World Economic Forum. In my podcast Boyan shared his passion for environmental engineering and his solution on how to solve our environmental issues and the ocean plastic pollution. Their beta version recently proved successful in the great pacific garbage patch. The mission was completed and first plastic has arrived on shore. The Ocean Cleanup also aims to solve the cause of the problem – that's why "The Interceptor" was developed catching plastic pollution in rivers across the world. In September 2020 they will launch the first product made out of the collected plastic – check it out here: https://bit.ly/2OeHjsk
