Watch: Aquadrone cleans ports and harbours from waste

In an attempt to reduce the vast amount of plastic in the oceans, the Dutch company RanMarine Technology built an aquadrone that sucks up garbage from the water. The drone is called the WasteShark, and it can remove up to 200 liters of trash in one trip, as well as alien/pest flora.

Using technology to reduce plastics in the oceans

Our oceans are currently facing three major challenges: climate change, overfishing and pollution. Plastic pollution in particular is increasing and has received international attention from governments, media and large sections of the public. In order to mitigate this problem, technology might give the solution.

How drones and AI can help tackle plastic pollution

Plastic pollution is, without any doubt, causing big problems. However, up until recently, not many were aware of the full scale of the problem. Thus, by using drones the size of plastic pollution can be measured more easily. This will inform more people, and will provide solutions to tackle it.
