“Seabin “ collects plastic waste

Bremerhaven. Already in use in Emden and Wilhelmshaven since last year, “Seabin” has been undergoing tests in the Kaiserhafen of Bremerhaven since March: Fastened to a pontoon, the little aquatic waste bin floats on the surface of the water and continuously sucks water through a filtration system to remove plastic waste from the port’s water. The Seabin is supposed to remove up to four kilos of plastic from the water per day as well as particles at least two millimetres in size. This waste can be separated and disposed of or recycled.
