Dutch inventor Boyan Slat founded Ocean Cleanup in 2013 in his hometown of Delft, the Netherlands. His staff consists of more than 70 engineers, researchers, scientists and computational modelers working daily to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. The company is headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The Navy has announced that it has scheduled cleanup activities at several shallow groundwater sites in and around Building 5 at West Tower Avenue and Monarch Street at Alameda Point. Building 5 served the Navy as its air rework facility. Personnel not only cleaned, reworked and manufactured metal parts, but applied radioluminescent paint to aircraft dial faces and refurbished aircraft instrumentation.
