Government Deploys Interceptor to Tackle Marine Debris Problem

The government has worked with a Dutch environmental organization Ocean Cleanup to intercept rubbish from the Chao Phraya River before it enters the ocean to help tackle Thailand’s growing marine debris problem.

Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) Director-General Sopon Thongdee said the “Interceptor” was deployed in Thailand and integrated it into the country’s waste management strategy in November 2019.

He said the Interceptor is capable of filtering up to 4 tons of rubbish and other debris from rivers and other bodies of water.
