Microplastics are particles of plastics that are no larger than five millimeters that contaminate the open ocean, and also the marine life that live within these aquatic environments. Our solution to address the underwater microplastic contamination is a submersible autonomous robot capable of filtering microplastics from the ocean. By filtering microplastics from aquatic environments, not only will the amount of plastic pollutants be reduced in these natural systems, but these plastics will also be available for recycling into a sustainable closed loop process.
