Seawater Volvere Machine (SVM) / Machine

Seawater Volvere Machine (SVM)
Seawater Volvere Machine (SVM)

The concept of SVM is literally unraveled with revolving seawater treatment. “How can we leave a clean sea to our later generations?” The pollution in sea has brought amounts of negative effects on human beings as well as sea creatures. SVM is designed to purify the seawater by adsorbing and filtering the pollutants in the water. The light material and solar energy equipment allow people simply put numbers of SVMs into sea and the machines that float on the sea will purify the water automatically. In addition, when SVM is full of pollutants, it can travel back itself to the marine recycle base with its navigation.
