The ocean cleanup: The project to close the entry of plastics into the ocean

por | Dic 8, 2022 | Información

The ocean cleanup is a project to clean the floating plastics in the oceans, 2 years ago they communicated us that their system works and that it is already capturing plastics. They also unveiled their big project The Ocean Cleanup Interceptor, a device that will be in charge of collecting floating waste from the rivers avoiding its arrival to the oceans.

 

According to a study, most of the plastic waste that comes from the oceans comes from the rivers, and among the hundreds of thousands of rivers that exist, only 1000 are responsible for 80% of the plastics that enter the oceans. To clean up the plastic in the oceans, it is not enough to clean up the plastic that is already in the oceans, but we have to stop the entry of new waste. And this is the mission of its new system, the interceptor. This has a variety that calanizes the floating plastics to the mouth of the interceptor where a conveyor belt collects them and takes them to containers for further recycling or treatment.

 

This barrier only abacar part of the river, so it does not interfere with other boats or harm the safety of wildlife, according to the company, his new invention is capable of extracting more than 50 000kg of garbage a day, insluso could reach 100 000kg in optimal conditions.

The interceptor is actually not the first system to extract garbage from the rivers, in fact there are many, for example mister trash wheel, is a very efficient device. It has been cleaning the waste from the city of Bailtmore since 2014. The difference between the interceptor and other systems such as mister trash wheel, is that the interceptor is transportable. For example, if the mister trash wheel is moved to another location, it would not be as efficient.

At the moment the Interceptor has 4 prototypes, 2 of them are already operational in Indonesia and Malaysia, a third system will be in Vitam, while the fourth will be deployed in the Dominican Republic.

In addition, they are already closing agreements with Thailand and Los Angeles in the United States. The company’s objective is to have installed one of its interceptors on the 1,000 most polluting rivers within the next 5 years. The interceptor is environmentally friendly and 100% solar-powered, with built-in lithium-ion batteries, which allow it to operate non-stop day and night and operate autonomously.

In addition, intelligent on-board software monitors system performance, energy usage and component status. When all 6 containers are full, a message is automatically sent to the mobile phone of the operator in charge of the operator, so the system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Ocean Cleanup’s objective is very ambitious and they are already starting to see the fruits of their labor, however The Ocean Cleanup will never be able to clean up all the plastic if we do not manage to reduce our dependence on plastic. We are all responsible for pollution, so reduce your consumption, reuse and recycle.
