PILOT SEAVAX - Our love affair with polymers is causing enormous damage to the marine environment, with microplastics now found in zooplankton, shellfish and the stomachs of most seabirds. This vessel is designed to use the latest technology to sample marine debris at different depths and store marine debris at different depths, allied to a database to help formulate effective fleet cleaning operations of the future. This vessel is solar and wind powered, so does not contribute to global warming. A consortium of programmers and specialist engineers are seeking funding to build a 17 meter prototype in 2021.
