Ocean cleaning machine: Australian surfers quit jobs, invent Seabin to clean up ocean - TomoNews

PERTH, AUSTRALIA — Two Australia surfers are gaining the attention from investors around the world for their invention of a device that helps clean the ocean, according to Australia's ABC News. ABC News reports that Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, who are best friends, became frustrated over the amount of trash that was floating in the ocean. They decided to quit their jobs to come up with a sustainable solution to the problem of ocean pollution, and invented the Seabin. The Seabin is an automated rubbish bin designed to be mounted on marina docks to help clean the water. According to the duo's company website, the Seabin, which is built from recycled materials, is mounted to a dock and connected to water pump that is powered by an source on the shore. The pump pulls water through the Seabin, thus bringing all the floating rubbish and debris in the water into a natural fibre bag inside the device before water is pumped back out. The floating debris is captured inside the Seabin, and water flows out through the bottom of the bin and pulled up into the pump on the dock. There is also an option to attach an oil and water separating device to the water pump to clean the water before it is returned to the ocean. "It essentially works as a similar concept to a skimmer box from your pool filter. But it's designed on a scale to work and essentially attract all that rubbish within a location within a marine harbour," said Seabin spokesperson Richard Talmage, as quoted by ABC News. ABC News reports that the duo designed a prototype of the bin in Perth before taking it to market in Mallorca in Spain, a marina capital of Europe. A crowdfunding effort has already raised $50,000 for commercial production of the Seabin, and a video of the device has attracted more than 10 million hits online. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

I believe it is a very good ID, dose still need some improvements towards animal & fish or other forms of safety, This great ID could clearly work in calrmer water areas and used in main areas like boat marinas, any traffic areas rivers outlet, harbors, it would need to be man or auto man for maintenance & there need to be a full re-think into how the pump station could work in a very different forms, I can see this is a great ID that be can changed into and re-developed into an outstanding integration, I can see this ID going a very long-way with the right input. Very Great job to the 2 Aussie Guys PS. but to PUT THIS INTO true reality; if the HUMANS did not dump or bury their waste or our world leaders cared about the greater true facts in any forms eg; toxic chemicals there wouldn't be as big problem as we have today, this problem is coased by humans and only getting bigger each day, In a simple lay-mans terms the more apples you put in a barrel the more bad apples your find, this just boils down to just one problem it HUMAN GREED.there will be a time that all this comes end, its just a matter of TIME or WHEN.

I think your advertising movie is misleading. In your movie you don't show the pump that is needed. So people think: awesome!!!

hows that little pump going to clean the ocean you would need to litter the ocean with thousands of those machines!

I bet China will copy this and make a ripoff vision soon

Nice thought, but I don't think even if the whole coast were covered in those it would make a difference.
MrZapparin (2 years ago)
+HunterShows The could roll for a thousand years.the same amount of garbage,toxic waste and poison would still be floating in the oceans since these machines don't affect the ocean currents
Naomi Chou (2 years ago)
futher additions to this could be used to safely filter water for those in dry places like africa!
Naomi Chou (2 years ago)
this is actually pretty cool
DonD512 (2 years ago)
But what about all the plankton, mirco nutrients, tiny krill and other beneficial sea life that is being sucked and killed by this!!? I swear, people don't think of all the factors smh
Dayle King (2 years ago)
I applaud them! The world needs people like them! Trying to clean up what was allowed into our open waters is a noble quset! THANK YOU GUYS!

I can't imagine that this would work efficiently. The water would need to be very calm (no big waves), so seabins will only work in closed areas such as ports. And it's also possible that small sea animals like fish fall into these seabins. So you end up with a bag full of trash and dead animals that died for nothing. Plus, you would need thousands of seabins to clean an entire ocean. Furthermore, pool pumps need a considerable amount of power. So please apply basic logic before shouting things like "muh government should totally invest in this!!!1". It's almost the same bullshit as these solar road panels.

Remember, every little bit helps. Even if its not a lot, it still reduces pollution.
Juicy Dangla (2 years ago)
what a good idea, now even prostitutes can rig one of these up to their gaping anus and filter out all those nasties.

This is what we should do instead of killing each other in senseless wars. This shows how productive as human beings we can be.

Wars are eliminating a lot of un-needed "people" out there. Let them kill the majority of them off, then declare peace :)

What do they do with the trash ? Put it in a trash can/dumpster . Where do they make the trash go? The land fields
Doggshort2 (2 years ago)
We don't do that in Australia, in fact a better idea than that. Recycling is our known solution, whether it'd be plastic or food waste. Schools use rotten fruit in their garden to make the plants grow healthier, Supermarkets use plastic bags to recycle into usable green bags that we have while we shop, etc.

I mean come on guys. It's just a large pool pump. why wasn't this invented sooner?
Gabriel Akibo-Betts (2 years ago)
why didn't you invent it then?

Kool if we all get one we can clean 0.0000000000000001% of the ocean.

+Arcanum honestly that wouldn't even keep a swimming pool clean.
busterthe2 (2 years ago)
+Arcanum Well I'm up for a larger version or system but I am glad you decided to engage in a debate rather than telling me to kill myself like the last guy that commented
