#FutureTech - Using the Seabin to Reduce Marine Pollution

The Seabin Project was founded in 2015 and produces and sells Seabins globally with the aim to clean up plastic pollution. The Seabin is designed to move up and down with the 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 (litres 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.

The Seabin catches an estimated 1.4 tons of floating debris per year (depending on weather and debris volumes) including micro plastics down to 2 mm small, the catch bag has a capacity of 20kg and can be changed multiple times per day.

The Seabin currently requires an electrical connection to the grid, however the company aim to develop a version that uses alternative energy sources such a solar, wave or wind power.
