Solution – Trash and plastics floating into the sea

Posted by D Chandrasekhar | Karnataka, India

We have proven solution - There is a lot of trash and plastics flowing into the sea from rivers and streams. There is more of this originating from Asian rivers as per reports. We have designed and deployed floating barriers that has ALREADY successfully stopped over 2000 tons of plastics from reaching the sea. These barriers do not need energy or boats in water. This has been at a low cost of 150,000 USD. One ton of trash and plastics removed from river mouth is one ton less in the sea. This is now deployed across 4 municipalities and 13 locations. Personally I am a veteran merchant navy captain and have designed this system. Any support system will help us do more. www.alphamers.com Ph +91-9980222870 Email sekhar@alphamers.com
