Aussie Surfers Slash Ocean Pollution With ‘Seabin’
Two Australian surfers have developed a unique ocean-cleaning technology which has caught the attention of investors around the world.
The ‘Seabin’ is the brainchild of best mates Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski who, after spending most of their childhood in the ocean, became frustrated at the amount of rubbish floating around.
The pair quit their jobs to work on the ‘Seabin’ – an automated rubbish bin for marina docks that many hope could help reduce ocean pollution.
With the help of WA seed investors Shark Mitigation Systems, the duo designed a prototype of the bin in Perth before taking it to market in Mallorca in Spain, a marina capital of Europe.
If the venture is successful, ‘Seabins’ could hit the market in mid to late 2016.
