THE STORY:

Hello to all, My project involves the construction of a system of booms anchored to the seabed for the reclamation of the great pacific garbage patch. Each year they enter our oceans 8 million tons of plastic that are conveyed, due to vortices and currents, in five main areas. Currently it is estimated that there are, around the waters of the Earth, over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic (in America a trillion is equal to our 1 trillion, you do the math). A frightening figure. A third is concentrated in what is called "great garbage patch in the Pacific" (Great Pacific Garbage Patch) .Without counting the economic damage every year companies operating in the fishing, shipping and tourism lost 13 billion dollars because of pollution, and those for health: it is, in fact, of carcinogenic materials that are ingested by the fish and that then the man, in turn, introduces into the body. A sore that, in addition to causing various malformations, helps the diffusion of devastating forms of cancer.
