Description

Invented by Australian surfers, The Seabin Project provides solutions to remove pollution in waterways before it reaches the ocean. The V5 Seabin unit is a “trash skimmer” designed for marinas, yacht clubs, harbours, ports and any water body with a calm environment and suitable services available. The unit acts as a ' floating garbage bin skimming the surface of the water by pumping water into the device'. The Seabin V5 is like a floating trash can that is effective in harbours and bays to collect floating debris, including micro plastics and micro fibres with an additional filter. The rim lies just beneath the surface of the water so nearby floating junk is pulled in. It uses a pump to act like a sinkhole and allow water flow to continue. Humans nearby need to check and empty it often.
