LITTER CLEANER - This 44m machine is designed to be operated in fleets to target ocean waste in blue water and in rivers. This present proposal is for a pilot derivation of the above machine, limited to around 16 meters in length, with an active cleaning head spanning 6.75 meters. This 1:20 model did not feature moveable wind turbines and the solar wings had limited angular movement. The proposed Pilot vessel will be around 7.5 times the size of this proof of concept machine.

 

 

Work Package 10 involves:

 

The analysis of collected marine litter and plastic from the chosen site to evaluate the machine in terms of harvest quantities and where possible, the improvement in quality of the area in relation to accumulated litter with especial focus on micro and macro plastics as it affects:

 

a) marine biology (biota)

 

b) marine litter as in terms of coastal appearance such as to impact on tourism and economic sustainability.

 

Finally, the results obtained from the project will be published and made available in an open format to scientists and the media. This may also include organising or attending awareness events that feature the working platform and attendance at events such as the European Maritime Days, the next being in Cork in 2020 - hence much too soon for this project.

 

 

COMBINED HARVESTER - This diagram shows the storage chambers, offloading tube extended for dockside transfers and the collector head at three different heights, raised out of the sea for transit, normal operations down to 1 meter, and lowered for microplastics in rivers and shores.

 

 

Divided into ten Work Packages (WPs), COF’s project structure aims to harness the potential of each individual partner and at the same time promote collaboration within a consortium of expert organizations, while also covering all its research, technology and management objectives.

PROBLEMFrom 2000 to 2012, the National Marine Fisheries Service reported an average of 11 large whales entangled in ghost nets every year along the US west coast. From 2002 to 2010, 870 nets were recovered in Washington (state) with over 32,000 marine animals trapped inside. Ghost gear is estimated to account for 10% of all marine litter.

COASTAL TOURISM - Beaches like this all over the world tell the story, affecting coastal tourism and killing wildlife.

 

 

H2020 WORK PROGRAMME - Pilot action for the removal of marine plastics and litter. Cleaner Ocean Foundation Ltd would be interested in forming or joining a consortium for this call and are currently seeking eligible collaborative partners within and outside of the EU.
