Decomposer- Waterscraper for Marine Litter

Decomposer, a floating building that could move continuously with ocean currents, to collect trash and turn it into other harmless materials as it travels.

Junk can be found everywhere from the bellies of animals and the tissues of our own bodies to the world’s vast oceans.

Disigned by Yilei Nie, Xibeini Luo, Bo Gao, Huan Wang:

“We are in a recycling system with other living things.

As Marine garbage producers, we are bringing disasters to other living things and gradually destroying our own lives.  What we throw away is gradually returning to us. It is urgent to improve the Marine environment and recycle Marine litter.”

The plastic trash floating in the ocean is not stationary. Instead, it keeps moving with ocean currents. If it is just point-to-point fishing, it will cost a lot of manpower and material resources.

“When we move the building from the land to the sea, according to the relationship between buoyancy and volume, the larger the volume of the building in the sea, the more buoyant the building will be, and the floating of the building in the sea will be more stable. Therefore, the building in the sea is a building that grows downward from the sea surface. As the pressure in the seawater increases with the depth of the sea, the volume of the building also decreases gradually from top to bottom under the influence of the pressure. In order to make the building able to withstand frequent storms at sea, we added a closed space that can be opened and closed at the sea part of the building, so that the airbags can be closed when the storm comes, reducing the negative impact of the storm on the building.
