Retrieval and recycling of marine litter in Borneo.
The last few months have been rather 'turbulent' for our Litter Traps in Borneo.
The recent monsoon season has given us and Future Alam Borneo, the opportunity to test our devices in rough weather conditions.
We're very happy to see how the Litter Trap's structure, even if made with local materials, has not been damaged. Our local partners, decided to move one of the traps from the Sim Sim site to a new testing location, in proximity of the Sandakan grand mosque and the volume of trash collected has risen significantly.
We look forward to further researching the quality of retrieved plastic litter and testing its potential for recycling.
