Effectively cleaning oceans using automated floating bins

20 May 2016

The Seabin has been designed and created as an automated rubbish bin that catches floating rubbish, oil, fuel and detergents in an environmentally friendly way.

The Seabin isn’t big or bulky and can fit into almost any space without being obtrusive or taking up dock space for boats. The waste is collected easily and disposed of responsibly in the already established waste disposal system of the marina. 

How does it work?

The Seabin is fixed to a floating dock with a shore based water pump on the dock running on shore power. The water pump creates a flow of water into the bin, bringing with it all the rubbish and debris which is caught in a natural fibre bag. The water is then sucked out of the bottom of the bin and up to the water pump where it can then be pumped back into the marina. 

The Seabin can be used for floating docks in the water of marinas, private pontoons, inland waterways, residential lakes, harbours, water ways, ports and yacht clubs. It can even be fitted to super yachts and motor yachts.

This is an Indiegogo project, for more information click here.
