OCEAN CLEANER / OCEAN CLEANER

OCEAN CLEANER
OCEAN CLEANER

According to statistics of the United Nations, the output of plastic waste can reach 260 million tons every year. Most of the waste will float to seas or oceans and become giant waste islands. To recycle the waste island and the floating waste, we designed the “OCEAN CLEANER”.
“OCEAN CLEANER” can move in middle of sea by using solar energy, wind energy and tidal energy in an unmanned condition, automatically collecting and storing the waste. A multiple-unit task can compress the waste into bricks of 2×2 with which the manual islands will be built.
