»The technical development of the "Pacific Garbage Screening" project calls attention to the pollution of the oceans caused by plastic waste. Fully CO2 neutral, the 400 x 400 metre large platform calms the flow and provides buoyancy to plastic objects in the water, without endangering fish and other aquatic creatures. This visionary and solution-oriented student project sets a high standard, and this is precisely what the Federal Ecodesign Awards is aimed at achieving. It is a real accomplishment.«
