Marine microplastic recycling base station / Recycling

Marine microplastic recycling base station

The submarine collects microplastics less than 5mm in diameter from the ocean by filtering seawater and then transports them to the base station for recycling and reclamation. The base station uses a method of breaking and compressing plastic to regenerate the collected ocean microplastics into non-polluting modular floating islands at sea, which can provide habitat for fish and birds, as well as grow aquatic plants to purify water.
