To rid the world’s oceans of plastic, we must remove legacy waste and prevent plastic from entering the ocean. Because rivers are the primary source of ocean plastic, this is where we needed to apply a solution.

The Interceptor is the world’s first scalable solution for preventing river debris from entering the ocean – meaning it can be placed in the majority of the world’s most polluted rivers. The Interceptor, much like our ocean cleanup technology, relies on natural forces (river currents and solar power) to extract debris flowing through rivers and ensure that it does not make its way to the ocean.
