Petroleum Recycling Machine / Products and Applications

Petroleum Recycling Machine
Petroleum Recycling Machine

The Petroleum Recycling Machine is designed with the appearance of “Giant Oceanic Manta Ray”. Self-driving was implemented by the internet of things created by the sensors at the front of the machine and the recycling machines placed in the ocean to perform tasks. They can communicate with each other regarding the area being cleaned. It will program automatically and move towards the ocean area with uncleaned oil in order to reach the golden rescue time.
The reason “Giant Oceanic Manta Ray” was adopted as the biomimicry appearance in the design is that people captured illegally, causing the number of this animal to decrease gradually.
