Rail Wastebasket System
Marine waste collector
A huge amount of waste plastic continues to find its way into the world's rivers, lakes, seas, and oceans, with devastating consequences for marine life. The core problem is that we are producing plastic waste at a far higher rate than we can collect or dispose of it. This product filters seawater to collect waste and debris, which can later be disposed of or recycled.
This project ably tackles one of the biggest environmental challenges facing humanity – the ongoing proliferation of plastic waste in marine environments.WINNER STATEMENT
