Published on 09/13/2016, 3:12 PM
Created by Andrew Turton, ocean lover, sailor, boat builder and Pete Ceglinski, industrial designer and surfer Seabin Pty Ltd - through its branch The Seabin Project - aims to fight against water pollution by means of innovative technologies and educational activities for businesses, communities and individuals including the children. The founders of Seabin Pty Ltd have developed the "Seabin" a collector of floating waste in the fight against plastic pollution at its source.
Seabin - Innovation in its simplicity
Fixed to a pontoon, the Seabin immersed in the water and connected to an electric pump which creates a flow to attract floating waste and hydrocarbons to the collector. Wastes are collected in a bag composed of natural fibers. A separator cleans the water that will be released from hydrocarbons. Once full, the bag waste and pollutants container are emptied by maintenance personnel then replaced in the Seabin.
Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski co-founders of Seabin Pty Ltd declared: "We are very pleased to enter into this partnership which comes after many years of research and testing. Our innovative and world first design and technology partnered with Poralu Marine brings us a recognized expertise worldwide and its support shows the relevance of our approach. Together, we can develop high quality Seabins to fit the needs of users and with eco-responsible materials. Moreover, Poralu´s extensive global distribution network will allow us to be closer to our customers and thus to limit our carbon footprint. It was essential for us having a sustainable approach combining quality and responsibility to all levels from production to distribution".
