Since its design and construction in 2019, Interceptor 004 has been on quite the journey. We have documented every step – from its build to transport, and will continue to do so to the day that it extracts waste from one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. Interceptor 004 has a story of its own and you can follow it in this special Interceptor 004 series.
With behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive interviews with the teams persevering for its success, you will witness why the Interceptor is crucial to The Ocean Cleanup’s mission to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
