The Dutch non-profit organization is developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic. The NPO will be launching the world’s first ocean cleanup system from the San Francisco Bay.

The system will be deployed in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, the world’s largest accumulation zone of ocean plastics.

Algorithms help specify the optimal deployment locations, after which the systems roam the gyres autonomously. Real-time telemetry will allow them to monitor the condition, performance and trajectory of each system.

Situated halfway between Hawaii and California, the patch contains 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic and covers an area twice the size of Texas. The Ocean Cleanup’s ultimate goal: reducing the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans by at least 90% by 2040.
