The only reason this guy doesnt get enough attention it's because he's not a Soros funded imbecile with half functioning brain.

His projects are too down-to-earth for media to pick as stories. There is no shocking value.

Although it is interesting what part of his argumentation about cleaning of "90% of ocean plastic pollution" is real, and what is made to satisfy investors. Numbers look too high, to be honest. His new river barge concept looks better than that ocean thing though, but this isn't really and invention, just an engineering project based on already established tech. It means that if there are no such barges exist, maybe there are non-technological problems to solve.

Is he Bulgarian?

Oceans' surface is just too goddamn big. But if they let him he could reduce the oncoming pollution by large, and this could give time to fart around the high seas collecting the garbage.

Then he must be Boojaan Slaat at least.
(yes, I know that he is officially Dutch, but whatever).

Boyan/Bayan is the old Slavic name, known from folk tales (as mythical singer), but isn't used nowadays at least for eastern Slavs. It is also used as name for some type of accordion (musical instrument), and, recently, in internet slang for duplicate joke (because some old joke about accordion was published multiple times on some old internet forum).

Looks like Bulgarians still use that name.

>Oceans' surface is just too goddamn big. But if they let him he could reduce the oncoming pollution by large, and this could give time to fart around the high seas collecting the garbage.

His statements about high percentage of garbage were said before that river barge was presented, when only garbage spot cleanup thing was planned. I'm slightly skeptical that this is feasible number. Or he need to fill oceans with tens of thousands of these things, and have a very large fleet of ships to recover collected trash.

Stopping pollution from rivers look more interesting of course.

Did he mention a timeframe?

So Turks were Slavs. Or Slavs were Turks? Interesting alternative history theory.

>Did he mention a timeframe?

Site now says about 90% to 2040, but 50% in next five years. Although I guess it isn't easy to count amount of plastic in ocean, only with statistical methods that always have pretty large errors.

Well, it's probably because it's a little obscure and it's not so marketable as an enterprise
