The idea of a young inventor is quite simple. He proposes to establish 100-kilometer V-shaped barriers across ocean currents. Barriers consist of rubber inflatable three-meter buoyobednyh pillows, interconnected.
A ready-made 100-meter prototype of the barrier will be tested this week in the North Sea 23 km from the coast of the Netherlands. The aim of the project is to stop the movement of plastic waste, then collect them in one place and send them for recycling.
For reference. Each year, up to eight million tons of plastic wastes enter the world’s oceans. According to ecologists, the main accumulations of floating debris are concentrated in five giant garbage “spots” scattered in the Pacific Ocean between California and Hawaii, which is largely promoted by the swirling of ocean currents.
