The @Seabin_project Is a Calm-Water Waste Collector, Ridding Marinas & Ports of Floating Debris

For use in marinas and yacht clubs where debris might otherwise pool, collect, and stagnate, the Seabin is essentially a floating garbage bin. Primarily manufactured from high-density polyethylene the seabin will easily catch its own weight in solid debris over time – from large, floating objects to microplastics as small as 2mm – while also filtering water along the way. At the cost of about $1/day the system can trap around 1.5kg of waste per day (the pump system displaces 25k liters per hour while being relatively unobtrusive – wherever wind and water currents generally push things, the water displacement feature of the Seabin will gently collect objects for removal).

You can see some examples of their device below, or read more about the technical specifications or the company’s global partnerships in this overview book (PDF).

All in all a great initiative – hat-tip to our own Ross for wanting to shout-out for the Seabin, we hope to hear more about their progress.

And lastly watch a seabin get manufactured and tested:

Seabin production

SEABIN PRODUCTION IS UNDERWAYPlease share.Poralu Marine Seabin production is underway. This is the assembly line and the test tank. Seabin orders are coming in and its hard to keep up with the demand. Over 220 marinas from 170 countries have requested to purchase Seabins and we are working hard to fullfil these requests.Order your Seabin today at www.seabinproject.com.
