BLUEM / Coral area cleaner


Coral reefs are critical marine habitat on which many ocean species depend. Additionally, creates a beautiful tourism ecosystem and provides direct economic benefits to humans as well. Recently, however, coral reefs are imperiled by danger. Rising temperatures caused by global warming and the use of sunscreens caused coral bleaching, which is fatal to the ecology of coral. Therefore, 'BLUEM' is proposed as a way to protect the ecosystem of coral.
'BLUEM' are located between the corals, purifying the oil that hinders the coral's growth, and discharging the refined seawater back into the sea.
