The Interceptor’s mode of operation is simple. The boat is strategically placed in the river, allowing other boats to navigate normally, but deploying a barrier that forces the garbage, pushed by the river current, to reach the mouth of the boat. There, a conveyor belt picks it up and transfers it to an autonomous system, which distributes the garbage evenly among six containers and places them on a platform that can be detached from the ship.

In this way, once all six containers are full, the system sends an alert to a local operator, who picks up the platform and moves the garbage to the shore for recycling, returning the empty containers back to the Interceptor so that the ship can continue to do its work. According to Boyan Slat, each Interceptor can collect up to 100,000 kg of garbage per day.
