COMBINED HARVESTER - The SeaVax is an example of innovation that many benefit islands. The concept may be adapted to many ocean cleaning tasks, beginning with the notion that there may be sufficient interest in a plastic recovery system, it now appears that the sargassum crisis could have reached a high enough state of emergency to warrant further time and investment in development.

 

Sadly, the market for carbon sequestration, is not well enough developed to be a reliable source of income, to make a business plan based on 'offset' acceptable to lenders. Hence, community cooperatives may be on the cards, possibly supported by 'emergency funding,' with an eye on keeping beaches clean of ecological and health hazards, possibly with biomass, fertilizer production and medicines derived from harvests, to offset the capital investment contributions of financiers, such as the World Bank or UNEP.
