Relationship Building | Bangkok Begins

We’re in Bangkok, Thailand, where Interceptor 019 has been deployed as our first step in cleaning the Chao Phraya – one of the world’s busiest rivers.

Charlotte de Jong, Business Development Manager at The Ocean Cleanup, has spent years preparing for this moment, collaborating with dozens of partners, and facing the challenges of placing an Interceptor in a prime central location in one of the world’s great cities.

Catching Up hears how Charlotte has worked together with Thai administrators, volunteers, and businesses to ensure Interceptor 019 has maximum impact and visibility for Bangkok’s residents and how our technology and expertise require local expertise and ownership to complete our mission of ridding the oceans of plastic.
