Palma marina adds Seabin

ADVERTISEMENT

Marina Port Mallorca has installed a Seabin marine garbage device that can collect up to 3 pounds (1.5 kg) of floating garbage per day – more than half a ton a year.

Part of The Seabin Project, the device acts as a sort of vacuum cleaner and has the capacity to filter up to 6,604 gallons (25,000 liters) of water per hour. The device can hold up to 44 pounds (20 kg) of garbage filtered from the water, so it does not have to be emptied every day, according to a marina press release.

The Seabin also filters microplastics (plastic particles smaller than 5 millimeters), and can remove wood, paper, oil and detergent as well.

The Seabin, installed on one of the docks in the Bay of Palma, is the invention of two young Australians who manufacture and help install them at ports around the world. While the current device works at docks and marinas, there are plans to install a version of Seabin in the open ocean in the coming years, according to the marina.
