Beginning later this year, Project Kaisei will collect debris from the ocean which Covanta Energy will use to test a new waste-to-fuel technology.
Currently, Covanta Energy's waste-to-energy facility handles a million tons of trash per year, producing enough electricity to power 80,000 homes. The energy created is the equivalent of about 500,000 barrels of oil per year.
