Essentially, Seabin is a floating device that collects debris, dirt, garbage, fuel and detergent from seawater in an attempt to purify it. Designed to sit on waters skimming docks and yacht clubs—areas which see heavy boat traffic and resulting pollution—the device is truly simple yet marvellous. It contains a natural fibre bag that traps the physical debris and has a pipe that is attached to a shore-based pump which helps pull water through the bag. As the water flows through the on-shore pump, it undergoes further purification through a water-oil separator before being released back into the ocean.
