Porto Montenegro joins marine-cleaning project

ADVERTISEMENT

Porto Montenegro has recently partnered with Seabin Project in its global pilot program to develop sea-cleaning technology. The Seabin, an automated marina rubbish bin, collects floating rubbish, oils, fuel and detergents to help create a cleaner sea with healthier marine life.

The partnership will largely focus on technical development of the Seabins, with an emphasis on education and research. Students at the Knightsbridge International School will examine what is collected by the bins and use this information to learn more about plastic pollution and its effect on the environment.

Peter Ceglinski, Seabin co-founder and managing director, said Porto Montenegro is an ideal location to test and trial the V5 Seabin, and to further develop new technology and programs.

As an ambassador in the pilot program, Porto Montenegro encourages other marinas and ports to participate in the data and research programs, which will be supplied free with the purchase of the Seabins once commercial sales begin mid-year.
