Protect Water Pollution / Environmental protection device

Protect Water Pollution

Protect Water Pollution (PWP) is a device that prevents waste from drifting anywhere along the ocean. Normally, waste is blown into the sea by the wind and then transported across the ocean by rip currents. Cleaning up the ocean becomes an environmental headache. The PWP normally floats at sea and generates electricity through the solar panels. When the rip current passes through the device, the motor is activated to allow the PWP to take in the air above it and then vent the air bubbles through the nearby vent hole. This prevents the floating garbage from been concentrated in the offshore area for easy cleaning.
