With System 002 we are specifically targeting plastics larger than 10mm, but we do not yet know the exact size the system will be able to capture. However, during the System 001/B mission we were able to catch microplastic particles down to the size of 1 mm., so this may also be the case for System 002.

Even though sub-centimeter-sized plastic represents a significant share of the plastic count, the mass is made up of larger objects. These larger objects will eventually turn into microplastics if not extracted, so our goal is to prevent that from happening.
