Project Overview

Cleaning The Garbage Patch

The main idea of this project is to clean the garbage patch and recycle the plastics with boats that include conveyor belts that can pull up the plastics without harming plankton and sea life. While the plastics get pulled up a recycling machine will sort the different plastics based on the Archimedes idea. The sorted plastics can be sold on the market so that the project can finance itself and can be profitable in five years. The cleaning will happen with two boats. One boat will start to clean meanwhile the other one goes to shore to empty the recycled plastic.
