Litter Trap, Indonesia
The first passive litter trap in the bay of Ambon is taken into use. The trap is positioned in front of one of the river mouths, and prevents floating litter from entering the bay and the sea.
Ambon is one of the islands in Indonesia that suffers from large-scale plastic pollution. We are working on an international solution with our experience from Rotterdam. We are working together with the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and local organizations, like Trash Hero Ambon, Lipi Research Centre and the Municipality of Ambon.
