A NEW revolutionary ‘plastic-eating’ vessel which could clean up the Pacific ocean in four decades has been revealed in a world first. Known as the Ocean Saviour project, the self-powering 70m tri-deck clean-up vessel is the world’s first boat to find which will find and recycle plastic from the ocean.
The vessel works by collecting plastic waste, which is finely chopped, milled and processed using plasma gasification, with the end product becoming fuel for the yacht. It is estimated her technology would allow her to clean up the entire Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 40 years

Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
