Floating anti-plastic waste dam to be tested in North Sea
A revolutionary floating dam that traps plastic bags, bottles and other waste choking the world's oceans will be tested at sea for the first time in 2016, the Ocean Cleanup foundation said.
"It will be the first time our barrier design will be put to the test in openwaters," the foundation said of the 100 metre-long (62 miles) barrier segment that will be deployed 23 kilometres off the coast of The Netherlands in the second quarter of the year.
Most ocean waste collection programmes use boats to scour the surf for the plastic flotsam and jetsam in which dolphins, seals and other sea creatures become entangled.
Ocean Cleanup's barrier uses currents to passively ensnare waves of garbage -- while allowing fish and other sea creatures through.
