Turning the Tide on Ocean Pollution with ABB Ability™

Cleaning plastic from the world's oceans with ABB technolgy

A massive accumulation of plastic now floats in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and California. The largest of five offshore plastic accumulation zones, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is now estimated to be twice the size of Texas and three times the size of France.

Plastic in the world’s oceans has developed into a massive environmental challenge. That is why ABB is deploying its technology to help raise global awareness of the problem. The ship Fantastiko, operated by the Dutch foundation By the Ocean we Unite (BTOWU), uses advanced solutions supplied by ABB to study, measure and report on the rising concentration of plastic in the ocean.

Find out how ABB is deploying its technology to help recover plastic waste from our oceans and raise global awareness of the ever increasing problem.
