Seabins- filters plastic pollution of marine waters​

 

The ocean is filled with eight million tonnes of rubbish – enough to fill five carrier bags for every foot of coastline on the planet.

But a new invention could tackle this problem, one port at a time.

A pair of surfers from Perth, Australia, has invented a ‘floating bin’ that automatically sucks rubbish floating on the water into it like a vacuum cleaner.

A pair of surfers from Perth, Australia, has invented a ‘floating bin’ (pictured) that automatically sucks rubbish floating on the water into it like a vacuum cleaner. Peter Ceglinski and Andrew Turton have spent four years developing the ‘Seabin’ and said the device could spell the end of polluted seas

While the invention may do little to combat five giant ‘garbage islands’ that swirl around the world’s major ocean gyres, it could stop waste from leaving harbours and marinas, for example Peter Ceglinski and Andrew Turton have spent four years developing the ‘Seabin’ and said the device could spell the end of polluted seas.

The Seabin has been designed for use in marinas and ports into which ocean pollution is often swept by tides, wind and storms.

The Seabin consists of a cylinder that floats upright with one end sitting on the water’s surface. A water pump on the shore then creates a flow of water into the bin (shown), bringing rubbish with it. The refuse is caught in a mesh ‘catch bag’, and the water is pumped back into the sea

WHY SEABINS ARE FOR MARINAS

 

There are floating ‘islands’ of plastic in the middle of some oceans, but the inventors of Seabins want to place them near the coast.

‘The marinas, ports and yacht clubs are the perfect place to start helping clean our oceans,’ they said.

‘There are no huge open ocean swells or storms inside the marinas, its a relatively controlled environment.

‘The wind and currents are constantly moving the floating debris around in our oceans and in every port, marina or yacht club there is always some pollution heavy areas based on the predominant wind and current directions.

‘By working with these marinas, ports and yacht clubs we can locate the Seabin in the perfect place and mother nature brings us the rubbish to catch it.’

It consists of a cylinder that floats upright with one end sitting on the water’s surface.

A water pump on the shore then creates a flow of water into the bin, bringing rubbish with it.

The refuse is caught in a mesh ‘catch bag’, and the water is pumped back into the sea.

The bins can be left running 24 hours a day and are simple to empty, according to the inventors, who are now living in in Palma, Mallorca.

They are looking to raise $230,000 (£155,000 ) on Indiegogo to make their idea a reality.

The bins cost $3,825 (£2,500) each and are expected to be ready to deploy late next year.

‘The majority of my childhood was spent in the water,’ Mr Ceglinski said.

There’s nothing worse than being out there surrounded by plastic.’

After a stint as a product designer, working with plastic, he met Mr Turton who told him about his project.

‘The Seabin is a revolution in ocean cleaning technology. It will help create cleaner oceans with healthier marine life,’ Mr Turton added, explaining they are designed to cling to the coast.

‘Marinas, ports and yacht clubs are the perfect place for the Seabin – there’s no ocean storms, it’s a controlled environment.
