The Seabin is a floating debris interception device and a revolution in ocean cleaning technology, It helps create cleaner oceans with healthier marine life. The Seabin project is helping create a better way of life for everyone and every living thing.
It is designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs, ports and any water body with a calm environment and services available. The idea was to build a sustainable floating garbage bin that could collect water borne plastics and trash 24 hours a day. Over time, the scope of the project evolved into a comprehensive research, technology, and educational initiative with global interest and reach.
One of the aim of the Seabin Project is to raise awareness on the plastic littering in the sea – one of the world’s greatest environmental problems. It is estimated that by 2025, the oceans will contain one ton of plastic for every three tons of fish.
WHAT IS THE SEABIN
The V5 Seabin unit is a floating debris interception device designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs, ports and any water body with a calm environment and services available.
WHAT CAN THE SEABIN CATCH?
The Seabin can catch an estimated 1.5 kg of floating debris per day (depending on weather and debris volumes) including micro plastics down to 2 mm small.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Seabin moves up and down with the range of tide collecting all floating rubbish. Water is sucked in from the surface and passes through a catch bag inside the Seabin, with a submersible water pump capable of displacing 25.000 LPH (liter per hour), plugged directly into 110/22V outlet. The water is then pumped back into the marina leaving litter and debris trapped in the catch bag to be disposed of properly.
WHERE TO PLACE IT
The Seabin is installed in a specific “Debris problem area” in the marina on a floating dock. This strategic positioning enables the wind and the currents to push the debris directly to the Seabin.
